Would you consider the audio edition of Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life to be better than the print version?
I liked this book a lot. I'm now going to read the second book in this series.
I'm an 11-year-old boy who would rather be outside than read.

More bad message than good.
This book consists of 3 1/2 hrs of glorifying, cheering, and even providing instruction for the breaking of rules which we are taught are simply not for some people. Then you have 30 min of lucky breaks and improved circumstances for a protagonist that does not seem to have learned any of the lessons available along the way. The message seems to be "Be a brat, have a good time, ignore school work, and everything will work out in the end anyway."
It weirdly illustrates but fails to acknowledge the problem of telling harmless imaginary friends from juvenile onset schizophrenia in a child who is clearly acting out at the insistance of a voice that only he hears urging him to do bad things. Patterson has clearly strayed far to far from his area of expertise. The bad messages far outweigh the good in this book, which is odd today when there are so many really good books available.
