Rafe Khatchadorian has enough problems at home without throwing his first year of middle school into the mix. Luckily, he's got an ace plan for the best year ever, if only he can pull it off. With his best friend Leonardo the Silent awarding him points, Rafe tries to break every rule in his school's oppressive Code of Conduct. Chewing gum in class-five thousand points! Running in the hallway-ten thousand points! Pulling the fire alarm-fifty thousand points! But when Rafe's game starts to catch up with him, he'll have to decide if winning is all that matters, or if he's finally ready to face the rules, bullies, and truths he's been avoiding. Blockbuster author James Patterson delivers a genuinely hilarious-and surprisingly poignant-story of a wildly imaginative, one-of-kind kid that you won't soon forget.

"Narrator Bryan Kennedy animates the angst and glory of Rafe Khatchadorian's first year in middle school. With quick changes in pitch and pacing, Kennedy matches the roller coaster of events recounted in Rafe's sketchbook, which details his attempt to break every rule in school. Rafe and his imaginary friend, Leo the Silent, make one rule: No one gets hurt. That rule is what makes Rafe different from his soon-to-be-stepfather, Bear. As Rafe ponders the turmoil of his life, he tries to decide what it means to be good or bad when he's always in trouble either way. With or without the accompanying PDF of Rafe's sketches (downloadable and available on the last CD), Kennedy's performance achieves a vivid rendering of Rafe's art in the listener's mind. A.M.P.
