In this hilarious novel, written in the voice of eighth-grader Wyatt Palmer, Dave Barry takes us on a class trip to Washington, DC. Wyatt, his best friend, Matt, and a few kids from Culver Middle School find themselves in a heap of trouble-not just with their teachers, who have long lost patience with them-but from several mysterious men they first meet on their flight to the nation's capital. In a fast-paced adventure with the monuments as a backdrop, the kids try to stay out of danger and out of the doghouse while trying to save the president from attack-or maybe not.

      this book is very funny and it was easy to put the pictures in my head but this book was unrealistic to what could really happen.

        A really good and funny book. It tells the story of a middle school field trip to Washington D. C. gone wrong, and things take a twist when one of the students is kidnapped.

          "The Worst Class Trip Ever? Sheesh, I've had ones that are WORSE". Well, IMPOSSIBLE. This story is about Wyatt (with a severe crush on this cute girl named Suzana), Matt, (who loves Halo but keeps getting killed), Cameron (serious gas issue) and Suzana, (Very popular, has maybe 183 million instagram followers). This book is top to bottom funny, and serious. It all starts in Miami, and the class is taking a trip to Washington D.C. They are riding a plane, when they see someone suspicious. In fact, 2 suspicious people, looking at a laptop with a satelite look of the White House. Now, see, who looks at a White House all day? Wyatt and Matt are convinced that they are going to bomb or missile the White House to shreds. Matt steals one of the men's backpack, and gets caught, and has to return it. But when the suspicious guys find out Matt has took one of the missile jamming lasers, they are after them! Talk about Danger!! I will recommend this to anyone who wants a good ol' laugh. (That means EVERYONE).

            I was really surprised reading this book. When I first looked at the description I was hesitant. Even though the main characters the cover and the way the book was portrayed, i thought it was meant for younger kids. The only reason I considered this book was because it is by Dave Barry. I have read some of his other books and enjoyed them very much, so I decided to give the Worst Class Trip Ever a try. The main plot of this book is about Wyatt, a 8th grade boy who goes to Washington D.C. on a field trip. While there they discover a plot of terrorism. They try to stop the evil men, but then Matt, Wyatt's best friend is kidnapped. What will Wyatt and his friends do? Who will stop the bad men? What will happen next? This book has a lot of action in it, so I would suggest it for older kids. I liked this book very much, but would not suggest it for younger kids.

              This is a pretty good book. The characters are funny, if a little predictable. The plot line is different, even though there are some cliches. There aren't a lot of jokes, but the book is fairly entertaining.

                This book is geared towards boys. I guess they would think it was funny. I couldn't really ever imagine the story in my head and it seemed far fetched and silly!

                    It is a mix of suspense and confusion. I really enjoyed the book and it was hard to stop reading it. I really recommend this book.

                      So far it is about this funny kid named Wyatt Palmer who takes a class trip to Washington DC and don't really enjoy it. Would if some mysterious guys were (I think) trying to kill the president, I think not. But so far it is a good book.
