“This book is about a girl that is starting middle school. Her brother was a big trouble maker in this school so everyone thinks she is like him. Her teachers don't even give her a chance to do projects. They just give her a F. She doesn't like that.”Abigail wrote this review Tuesday, November 19, 2013.

“A great book that has lots of action and imagination. Georgia is living her life in the footsteps of her lying brother.....BAD footsteps. He has created a bad reputation for all the Khatchadorian kids to come to HVMS. He had book every rule in the books, and all the teachers working there expect Georgia to be the same way, a bad student. But, in reality, Georgia is a straight A student who just wants to fit in. She wants to be popular, but Rafe has already made sure she won't in his years at HVMS. But everybody knows who her brother, Rafe, is and make sure to keep an eye on her, without even knowing her yet. But in all the books that he narrated, he lied about. She's the "good" kid, not Rafe, and she wonders how she's even related to him. Then she finds out a HUGE secret; she's adopted.”Amaya wrote this review Tuesday, November 12, 2013.

“This is the fourth book in the "Middle School" series, which is filled with fun illustrations and lots of humor. The first two books in the series focused on Raf Katchadorian, who got into all sorts of trouble in middle school. This fourth volume takes on the perspective of his younger sister Georgia as she settles into 6th grade.
Georgia has always been a stellar student, but she finds herself struggling in finding a home in her new school. Most of the adults seem to view her with distrust because of her brother's reputations. It probably doesn't help that his goal for one of the years he was there was to break everybook in the student handbook. Georgia is also finding it hard to make friends. There are three girls who are the Princess Patrol, and they define everything that is cool in the school They spend all of their time looking down on poor Georgia.
There is also this one girl Rachel who seems to hang around with her all the time, but Georgia is not sure if she is friend material. She is really not all that cool and seems to shout all the time. Georgia is basically not sure whether Rachel would be good for her already fragile image.
Georgia does seem to find some friends with a group of girls her brother Raf goes to school with at an arts high school. they four of them start a band and have real hopes for success, particularly when they are asked to participate in a Battle of the Bands at a school dance.
All-in-all, this is a pretty fun read that really fits in with the series. It is a fun read, but it also highlights some of the challenges of bullying and social structure in middle school. I think a lot of kids will relate to what Georgia is feeling. I do wonder if the really relaxed and crass humor would have a lot of appeal for girls and if Georgia being a female narrator would be a problem for boys. If they can get past those challenges, I do think the kids will really enjoy this book, though.”
“Not bad. It was a quick read for me; finishing in 2.5 hours, right after I finished Middle School: Get Me Out of Here. Overall, good book. It was fun reading from Rafe's sister's point of view. ”Jackie Clark wrote this review Friday, May 24, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
