The Sixth Grade Nickname Gameby Gordon Korman
But now some of the nicknames that Jeff and Wiley have invented are backfiring on them.
There is practically no one in their school who hasn't been nicknamed by the duo. They've dubbed their own underachieving class "The Dim Bulbs"; their pop-eyed principal is better known as "Deer in Headlights"; and their enormous new English teacher, Mr. Hughes, is "Mr. Huge."
But now some of the nicknames that Jeff and Wiley have invented are backfiring on them. Will the nicknamers be able to get it together before it's too late?

The Sixth Grade Nickname Game is about a class, the ¿Dim Bulbs¿, who get a new teacher, named Mr. Hughes. The nicknamers, Jeff and Wiley, give him the nickname ¿Mr. Huge¿. They give him that name because he is big and very noisy when cheering the kids on during their test. Because of this, the children can not concentrate and they are failing. Then a new girl, Cassandra, moves in and Wiley and Jeff both like her. In fact, they hurt their friendship when they start fighting over Cassandra. Because ¿Mr. Huge¿ is so loud, he¿s in danger of getting fired. But the state reading test is coming up, so the children are reading all they can to save Mr. Hughes because he always stood up for them. It reminds me of the time when we were all trying to do well on the NJASK. I would recommend it to kids my age because they would laugh out loud. What do you think will happen? Who do you think Cassandra will pick? Read this book and find out.
This book is probably one of Korman's funniest books EVER! The plot is hysterical... two boys who literally give nicknames to nearly everyone in the school... but then they meet a girl that rocks their world! I was laughing out loud the whole time! I reccomend this book to sixth-graders and young adults!
