After sixth grade, the very worst year of his life, Rafe Khatchadorian thinks he has it made in seventh grade. He's been accepted to art school in the big city and imagines a math-and-history-free fun zone. Wrong! It's more competitive than Rafe ever expected, and to score big in class, he needs to find a way to turn his boring life into the inspiration for a work of art. His method? Operation: Get a Life! Anything he's never done before, he's going to do it, from learning to play poker to going to a modern art museum. But when his newest mission uncovers secrets about the family Rafe's never known, he has to decide if he's ready to have his world turned upside down. James Patterson's winning follow-up to "Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life" is another riotous and heart-warming story about living large.

                Rafe Khatchadorian gets into trouble again. In the second book, Middle School Get Me Out Of Here written by James Patterson and Chris Tebbetts, Rafe and his family move in with their granny. Rafe is going into 7th grade and his mother sets up an interview for Rafe at Cathedral School of the Arts. When Rafe, the protagonist, is admitted into the art school, he soon meets Zeke, the antagonist in the story. Zeke is also in 7th grade and spends his time making fun of Rafe. Rafe does a self portrait and the entire class critiques each other’s work. In the first conflict, Zeke and his friend, Kenny, are very critical of Rafe’s self portrait. The second conflict happened when Rafe and his friend, Matty, decided to steal Zeke and Kenny’s art projects. He does get suspended and had to apologize to Zeke for destroying his art project. The turning point is when his mom gets a job. I recommend this book to the 8th grade level. Some high school students may enjoy the characters and the dangers they come across.
