Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life
Appropriately enough James is his library's digital champion , the book has its very own, very snazzy website, full of Rafe's Rants: middleschoolbook. He is starting American Middle School the equivalent to Year 7 and is an outsider and an obvious target for the school bully: 'Miller the Killer'. Rafe hatches a plan with his one friend Leo, called R. However the plan carries great risk with some disastrous consequences. They say don't judge a book by its cover, but I must confess to thinking that 'Middle School' looked a bit childish after seeing the cover, however, you shouldn't be fooled, this is a book for all ages.

First of all, his middle school resembles an ancient, high security prison. Secondly, it's staffed with angry monsters, like the dragon lady who teaches English, the three witches in the cafeteria, the ogre gym teacher, and the principal named the Lizard King. Thirdly, there's a nine-foot-tall troll of a sixth grader called Miller the Killer who is out to get him.
It is the first book in the "Middle School" series. Rafe Khatchadorian lives with his younger sister, Georgia, his mom and Mom's verbally abusive, deadbeat boyfriend, Carl.

Sign in. After his principal Andy Daly destroys his sketchbook, Rafe Griffin Gluck and his best friend Leo Thomas Barbusca decide to "destroy his book" and break every rule in the school's Code of Conduct. Imaginative quiet teenager Rafe Katchadorian is tired of his middle school's obsession with the rules at the expense of any and all creativity. Desperate to shake things up, Rafe and his best friends have come up with a plan: break every single rule in the school and let the students run wild. Budding young artist Rafe transfers to a new middle school, where the rules-obsessed principal quickly punishes him for his failure to conform by destroying a book of his drawings. Rafe then decides to fight back by playing pranks and breaking every rule in school. Rafe Khatchadorian, who enjoys a passion for art and has an incredible imagination, transfers mid-year to Hills Village Middle School after being kicked out of his previous one.
Our story begins with twelve-year-old Rafe Khatchadorian sitting in the back of a Hills Village police car. This is no kind of good. But let's back up a little. It's the first day of sixth grade and Rafe isn't exactly a fan of his new middle school. He's only got one friend—Leo the Silent—who's more like an imaginary friend, actually.
The book received critical acclaim from many reviewers and went on to spawn its sequel, Middle School: Get Me Out of Here! He also deals with problems at home. His mother constantly works double shifts at a diner and barely gets to see Rafe and his sister Georgia. He has a verbally abusive stepfather-to-be named Carl aka Bear , who "watches" over him when his mother is not home. He finds consolation in Jeanne Galletta, who is skeptical of Operation R.
