Rated 4 out of 5 by from By Lucy, age 10 It's a bit weird but also funny! A boy called Rafe is getting bullied by Miller The Killer but his imaginary friend called Leo is making him join a rule breaking club. Rate's teacher Miss Donatello keeps catching him out with hilarious results. I've enjoyed this book and would like to read something again by this author. I think the book is easy for me to read, so I would recommend this book for younger readers

Rated 3 out of 5 by from "Kid Book Central" This book is basically the start of JP doing a kids writing career. JP has a very good debut children novel, however there are a few bad parts to the book. It picked up way too fast, and the character is too much like Diary of A Wimpy Kid. Sorry JP, good book, but too many obvious comparisons. TheBookReviewer

Editorial Reviews

"There is substance as well as appeal here.... Patterson deftly manages the pace of revelations that take readers deeper into Rafe's fragile trust.... Readers ready for something else in the same vein but more substantive than Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Peirce's Big Nate should be introduced to Rafe."-Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
