Finally. A nice, relaxing, summer vacation. What can go wrong? Rafe discovers the lovely concept of "summer school" meets "sleepaway camp." Rafe can't possibly get in trouble here!

Yeah...just keep telling yourself that. Does Rafe attract trouble? Or is he drawn to it? Either way, trouble and Rafe once against tango in this nice (though inferior to the rest of the series) addition. ( )

I accidentally undertook a project this weekend. I read two middle grade books - one very much aimed at boys, the other [b:The Storybook of Legends|18053786|The Storybook of Legends (Ever After High, #1)|Shannon Hale|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1377633526s/18053786.jpg|25338957], aimed at girls. Neither really transcended their genre or gender, both had not-subtle lessons about doing the right thing in spite of rules, but this was the more interesting and more complex. I really had trouble with the glorification of revenge and the self-centeredness of the hero, but ok...

... ok, this would be good to discuss with a group of kids and see what they think. Are boys really like that? And when a boy goes home from camp early Legend, do his mates just forget about him? Is revenge the best solution? Was there anything else they should have tried? Are all kids who wear glasses smart bookworms?

3.5 stars. No interest in the other books. ( )

Rafe has been sent to summer camp. But this isn't the fun summer camp. This is more like summer school . At least he makes friends with the "muskrats" (The group of kids in his cabin). Things do get suspicious with this angry kid named legend with an unknown past and Normans weird behavior. In the end Rafe finds out Norman actually stays at the camp because of his abusive dad. In the end when Norman gets in trouble and Rafe takes the blame and is sent home instead.

Overall I think this book was okay. What I liked about it was they finally gave Rafe relatable friends and didn't let the story beat him up. I also liked how this story was inspired by the book "Holes". What I didn't like was how the plot was all over the place and didn't follow a plot triangle. (Writing the summary was kind of hard). In conclusion this book redeemed its lower qualities in the series but was all over the place when it came to the plot. ( )

This next book in the massively popular Middle School series is about an unforgettable summer of hi-jinks, new friends, and surprises, all told with the usual humour appreciated by 10 - 12 year olds. As an older reader I found this all too silly for me but could appreciate the deeper issues that the author, Patterson weaves between the humourous storyline. Issue such as parenting styles, habitual bullying.
What I did like about this book is how Rafe stands up to bullies and encourages his new friends to do so. Rafe Khatchadorian, the hero of the Middle School series, is ready for a fun summer at camp - until he finds out it's a summer school camp! Luckily, Rafe easily makes friends with his troublemaking cabin mates and bunkmate, a boy nicknamed Booger Eater, who puts up with endless teasing from the other kids. Rafe soon realises there's more to a person than a nickname, though, and Booger Eater might be the kind of friend you want on your side when the boys from the Cool Cabin attack. As I said a great read for 10 -12 year olds that like farts, revenge, and good vrs mean & ugly. ( )
