this book was fun to read

Review by Akiva

I like this book because it seems like real life but is funny. David needs to get rich quick -- but how do you do that when you are in middle school? I recommend this book.

good book

Review by Estherwins

How To Survive Middle School is a book about David Greenburg literally surviving Middle school. It's not very easy so far. Last year his mom moved to Maine with an organic beet farmer in an old house with no electricity after his dad told her not to play the tuba in the middle of the night. I find this hilarious. This is definitely a very funny book although I do question some of the things in it. Like some of the things that the bully does such as putting your head in the toilet. Also, David posts pictures of his sister, Ashley, with zit cream all over her face and calls it "the daily acne forecast" without asking! To me, some of the people in this book are horrible, but it is well written and if you can handle a little tragedy I think almost anyone in their right mind would love it.
