    I am 13 years old. I KNOW what middle school is like, because I was in 7th grade last year. This book is extremaly unrealistic. The author is very stereotypical with the 'preppies', 'jocks', 'nerds' sort of thing. I cringed whenever they said 'wassup?' She made pre-teens and teens seem like animals. Also, NOBODY who I have ever met goes to school in clunky shoes, tweed skirts, sweaters, and to top it all of, pinky-brown lipstick.

    It's Not Easy Being A Bad BOOK!

    When I first picked out this book I expected adventure but all I got was dullness! This book repeats ideas and problems about school, popularity, and fairness over and over again. The two girls, Margalo and Mikey, are very boring and bring nothing to the story. I had to concentrate on who was who rather than reading the book. Therefore, I would recommend this book to someone who is very smart. One thing that does make the book a bit interesting is that it relates to real-life although My life is much more interesting than the book. I give this book a 2/5 stars because it was very hard to stay awake while reading it.
