Best friends Jeff and Wiley are legends. There is practically no one in their school who hasn't been nicknamed by the duo. They've dubbed their own underachieving class "The Dim Bulbs"; their pop-eyed principal is better known as "Deer in Headlights"; and their enormous new English teacher, Mr. Hughes, is "Mr. Huge."

But now some of the nicknames that Jeff and Wiley have invented are backfiring on them. Will the nicknamers be able to get it together before it's too late?

    Looking for a good laugh? or maybe a fight between two very good friends well check out "the 6th grade nickname game". Two very good friends Jeff and Wiley are always giving people nicknames. Mean while there new teacher Mr Hughes ( nicknames Mr Huge because he's SUPER BIG ) has his job on stake because hes to rowdy and hyper. And at the same time Jeff and Wiley's friend ship is getting torn apart by the new student Cassandra. What I like liked about this book is that after all the ruff times Jeff and Wiley had they get there friendship back together. I would recommend this book 9-13 years of age because you need to be muture to understand the content. So you like the sound of this book, if you do check out "the 6th grade nickname game".

        This is a great book that will entertain 4th through 6th graders. Mr. Hughes is a new teacher. He is about ready to loose his job when his class isn't doing well. There is also a sadie-halwkins dance, best friends Wily and Jeff like Cassandra. Who will Cassandra ask? Is Mr. Hughes going to loose his job? Find out in The 6th Grade Nickname Game.
