All cynical Kyle wants is to get through the seventh grade unnoticed, but a self-help book from his well-meaning mother changes all that. Magically, the book seems to know all about him. And it wants him to improve his life.

Not only is he friendless, mistakenly taking super-difficult accelerated courses, and infamous for allegedly being involved in a violent "incident" on the bus (a rep that has the school terror sticking to him like glue), one of the true A Kids wants to lure him into questioning whether his class cheated on their state exams. How could a book help anyone through this kind of misery?

About the Author

Gail Gauthier writes in a spacious room her family refers to as "the office," but which everyone else knows as "the cellar." When she isn't writing or indulging in her habit of reading more than one book at a time, she tends to the business of running a family. She does a lot of "mom-type" stuff (such as masterminding birthday parties and driving unenthusiastic children to music lessons), helps with special events at the local elementary school, and chaperones field trips--activities that provide her with plenty of material about which to write. She lives in Conneticut with her husband and their two sons, William and Robert.

I actually thought this was a really great book. It was really interesting! But i wouldn't recommend it for grades above 6th because it's kind of childish. but not for any younger than fourth because of the language.

This book is hilarious! LOL! You will absoulutley LOVE this book if ur into reading. Some parts are a bit "woo" so i wouldn't recomend this book for under 5th or 6th grade. It depends how mature u are. This book was completly right for me and hopefully u will enjoy it just as much as i do! I absoulutley LOVE this book! I probably said this about 15 times! It had me on the floor laughing! Christmas shoppers start ur engines!

This book was good. It was a story about a boy named kyle who got this book called "happy kid" and how it affects his life. There is some language and some innapropriate moments. For example: when his friend says "did she rub her big chest all over you" or "did she rub her mouth all over you" but thats about all

uh.. this wasnt a great book for sure. I mean its not as good as i thought it was. It wasnt really interesting. I would recommend it to younger kids the age of 8 and 9. not really for teenagers.
