The day has come for Georgia Khatchadorian to head off to her first day at Hills Village Middle School where she expects to excel in all the places her troublemaking brother didn't--grades, popularity, and teacher admiration. But Rafe left a pretty big mark at HVMS, and everyone she meets immediately brands Georgia a problem child just like Rafe! On top of that, she has to deal with a snooty clique she dubs "The Princess Patrol", a "mini-Miller" (the not-so-little brother of Miller the Killer), and a screechy mouth-breather who desperately wants to be her best friend.
Luckily, Georgia has an outlet outside of school. She's in the coolest rock band ever--even though none of the girls really know how to play their instruments. When Rafe sneakily signs the band up to play at Georgia's first middle school dance, she's terrified she'll embarrass herself in front of the Princesses and the boy who's caught her eye. Will she be able to overcome her fears and stand up to the Princess Patrol? Will she let us in on the secrets she's holding back? Will Rafe ever stop being so annoying?
James Patterson's third installment in the riotous Middle School series introduces a fantastic new voice that will appeal to girls and gives readers a fresh, funny, and honest story about the ups and downs of being a middle schooler.
Praise for Middle School: My Brother Is a Big, Fat Liar:—
"Mayhem, misbehavior, and irreverence.... [and] don't forget the revelation of a big secret... This installment will not sit long on the shelf."
