Booklist Reviews 2012 May #1

In this sequel to Middle School, the Worst Years of My Life (2011), seventh-grader Rafe, his mom, and his sister move in with Grandma after Mom loses her job, thus ending Rafe's opportunity to attend alternative arts school Airbrook Air. Luckily, a former teacher recommends him to a nearby public arts school, where he makes a friend and launches Operation: Get a Life—a tempered version of his sixth-grade plan, this one involving big-city adventures. After Rafe is set up for shoplifting (by his supposed friend) and bullied for his honesty, he runs away, resulting in a return to his old town, where Airbrook Air awaits. Short chapters and a partially graphic format are sure to appeal. Subplots involving Rafe's missing father; adventures with his imaginary brother and muse, Leo; and Rafe's emerging talent as an artist are also well handled, although they create a more subdued tone than in the previous book. Maturity is on Rafe's horizon, but hopefully readers will be able to vicariously experience his eighth-grade adventures before it arrives. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Ever heard of this guy Patterson? Well, the publisher is plunking down a $2 million marketing campaign that ought to blanket all kinds of media, including those not yet invented. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Fall

After moving to the city, Rafe starts at a new art school, makes a friend, searches for his missing father, and begins a self-improvement mission called "Operation: Get a Life." While trouble follows Rafe into seventh grade, he learns from his experiences, growing as an artist and an individual. Illustrated with energetic drawings, the realistic story of this down-on-his-luck everykid is worth a read.
