MFKG0507 said Perfect. I am in middle school and this book made me feel special that I was strong. It made me feel to stand up for yourself and don't care what other people think. This book as a great message for 5 graders and middleschoolers, it inspired me to stay strong and it had a life that I have its totally realistic.. I am more than 5 star satisfied with this purchase I haven't read this book. It was a Birthday gift for my grandson's birthday.He had asked for it. He smiled when he got it. He set his tablet/games aside and started reading this book.I am more than 5 star satisfied with this purchase. Awesome and really coolbook I chose this rating because I loved this book. It's funny and a little crazy as it goes on,but totally awesome. What I liked about this book is that is a comic,well not necessarily a comic, but more like a graphic novel. Ma'am, you are the best author ever!!!!
