Tom Gates: Absolutely Fantastic (at Some Things)

What could be better (or worse) than a class trip? Tom's about to find out in this fifth wicked diary from his award-winning series.

Since Tom forgets everything, it's not surprising that he forgot all about the trip he's supposed to go on with class 5F. It's good that his family helps keep him on track (even, once in a while, his grumpy sister, Delia)! Luckily, there are loads of excellent things to do on the trip, like making rafts, eating snacks, and seeing some very weird creatures. That is, as long as Tom doesn't get stuck in a group with anyone who snores or worse (looking at you, Marcus Meldrew!).

              Tom Gates is a boy who hated his teachers, Mr. Fullerman in particular. This book don't really have a main plot, but most of the book is about Tom talking about how awesome the school trip will be. Marcus and Tom are like enemies, Tom hated Marcus and Macus hated Tom. Tom's sister is called Delia and she is being really mean to Tom. My favorite part of the book is when Tom doodles of Mr. Fullerman in class. The drawings are hilarious. I really like the book it is funny and the font of this book makes you think that you are reading someones journal. I recommend this series to people who liked the Diary of a Wimpy series. It is very similar to it.
