ARE YOU LISTENING? FRIDAYS! MIDDLE SCHOOL: THE WORST YEARS OF MY LIFE: AUDIO BOOK GIVEAWAY

  GIVEAWAY ENDED
MIDDLE SCHOOL: 
THE WORST YEARS OF MY LIFE
An Audio BooK
BY JAMES PATTERSON,
and CHRIS TEBBETTS 
READ BY BRYAN KENNEDY
ILLUSTRATED BY LAURA PARK  

ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
Rafe Khatchadorian has enough problems at home without throwing his first year of middle school into the mix. Luckily, he's got an ace plan for the best year ever, if only he can pull it off: With his best friend Leonardo the Silent awarding him points, Rafe tries to break every rule in his school's oppressive Code of Conduct. Chewing gum in class-5,000 points! Running in the hallway-10,000 points! Pulling the fire alarm-50,000 points! But when Rafe's game starts to catch up with him, he'll have to decide if winning is all that matters, or if he's finally ready to face the rules, bullies, and truths he's been avoiding.

Blockbuster author James Patterson delivers a genuinely hilarious-and surprisingly poignant-story of a wildly imaginative, one-of-kind kid that you won't soon forget.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
JAMES PATTERSON was selected by kids across America as Children's Choice Book Awards Author of the Year in 2010. He is the internationally bestselling author of the highly praised Maximum Ride novels, the Witch & Wizard series, the Daniel X series, Med Head, and the detective series featuring Alex Cross. His books have sold more than 205 million copies worldwide, making him one of the bestselling authors of all time. He lives in Florida.

Chris Tebbetts is the author of The Viking, a fantasy adventure series for young readers, and co-author of the young adult novel, M or F?, with Lisa Papademetriou. He lives in Vermont.


ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR:

It sounds like he learns breaking the rules aren't all that fun.

It does sound entertaining! Especially as they assign points to all of the rules.

It would be easier to answer, which one DIDN'T I want to listen to on audio. But if forced to just choose one (series)it would be the Women's Murder Club or Alex Cross's series.

It sounds like fun. I like the idea of the rules having points depending on how important they are. There is always that one kid that wants to try to show how tough they are (but really aren't).

Any Alex Cross book can be read to me. Start with Double Cross.

This sounds fun and entertaining, and that's why I'd like to read it! Plus it's something really different from the usual Patterson murder mysteries!

Sorry, I deleted the previous entry because I forgot my email address.

There are a ton of Patterson books that I'd love to listen to on audio! I haven't listened yet to any of the Alex Cross series, so I'd love to hear any of those!!
