  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2013 April #2
    Can her first year of middle school possibly be worse for Georgia—a "smart, kind, creative" girl known for good grades— than it was for her older brother, Rafe, who set out to break every rule in the student handbook? Evidently it can, as Georgia describes her first weeks at the school where her brother's reputation turns every teacher against her and she becomes an instant target for the local mean girls. Told in first person by an admittedly unreliable narrator, Georgia's narrative seems, at times, less like her version of reality and more like a daydream, with a self-assured boyfriend materializing and her much-dreaded troubles evaporating in time for the story's happy climactic scene. In addition, Georgia adjusts with perhaps unrealistic speed to the revelation that she was adopted. Still, like the earlier Rafe books in the popular Middle School series, this amusing, well-paced novel, which features cartoon-like illustrations, offers an accessible, quick read for tweens.
