Overview

Readers get a chance to participate in James Patterson's wildly successful Middle School series in this interactive book featuring more than 80 hilarious anecdotes from dueling siblings Rafe and Georgia Khatchadorian--plus dozens of fun-filled activities!

The Khatchadorian kids are an opinionated duo, and as readers of the Middle School stories know, they don't exactly see eye to eye. But when wild-card Rafe and mostly-straight-laced Georgia go at it, the only thing more fun than their ranting is getting to join in! Their back-and-forth banter on a range of topics--from bullying to cafeteria food to school dress codes--introduces more than 40 writing and drawing prompts and other games, along with room for readers to share their own points of view. (Includes over 200 illustrations.)

    Free-spirited Rafe , and prudish Georgia take on each other in a

    Free-spirited Rafe , and prudish Georgia take on each other in a battle of the siblings and beware, you will get sucked right into the middle of it.  You cannot just stand by and do nothing while they are duking it out.  You are invited to have a voice in their opinions, rants and very different views points on such things as dress codes, food preferences and especially friendships. You contribute to the narrative of the book as you get to contribute what you think.  How cool is that? 




    The Khatchadorian duo use language that kids of this age will love.  They talk about self-image, food fetishes and use words such as fart, zit popping and vomit which will have this age group devouring the content, reading on and asking for more of the same.  I know, I taught this grade level and I am fully aware of how their little brains work....or don't work sometimes too.




    The book is amazing because it is interactive and engaging to the middle-grade reader.  It is filled with more than 40 writing, drawing prompts and games that cry out for their attention and will have the reader, pen in hand, ready to dive right in and have his say. The momentum of the book is fast-paced and cheers the reader on to the next topic.  




    I highly recommend this book.  It is fun, witty and the illustrations could stand on their own, but with text added makes a brilliant combo.  I am always on the look out for kid-friendly books for that age group as those are the years that kids (especially boys) slip away from the printed word. When you find a treasure like this, a tool that will get your kids back into the "reading game", it is so important to get the word out that a book of this kind is available.  I give "Middle School Ultimate Showdown" two thumbs up and would give it three if I had an extra. Please buy and serve with a pen or pencil.
