Neil Swaab brings a unique hybrid of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and The Dangerous Book for Boys to young readers in this hilarious, edgy new series. Combining comics and spot illustrations with witty narrative, school "expert" Max Corrigan takes us, the reader, through our first week of middle school, i.e. the Worst Place in the Entire World. How are we going to survive the tough kids who are twice our size, sadistic teachers and restrictions that make jail look like a five-star resort?
Easy, thanks to Max Corrigan's epic plan to win over not just one, but all of the groups in school, from the Preps to the Band Geeks. Along the way, Max offers surefire advice and revealing tips on how to get through universal school experiences like gym class, detention, faking sick, dealing with jocks and bullies and acing exams (without getting caught cheating).
This is Book 1 in the Rule-Breaker's Guide Series. See all Rule-Breaker's Guide books here.
