This book is about a kid starting middle school with a bunch of new students. He has a hard time making friends especially when his best friend starts "bullying" him. He meets another girl named Sophie who helps him get through all these bad situtations. She also helps him become famous. Deffinitely a must read with many different things that you don't see coming. It might help some kids feel more confortable about middle school.

David Greenberg is eleven years-old and a huge fan of Jon Stewart, so much so that he makes internet videos called TalkTime where he provides a top 6 1/2 list and daily acne reports courtesy of an unsuspecting sister. He is also dealing with his mother leaving the family to go live on an organic beet farm. A place where she has no phone, no TV and no electricity. Where the only way she can stay in touch is through infrequent letters.

Luckily, David has his best friend, Elliot. That is until the day that Elliot goes girl crazy and is interested in making YouTube videos, instead choosing to team up with the biggest bully in their new middle school with the sole purpose of making David's life hell. Can David navigate this new world of middle school hell and still stay true to himself?

A great little book that deals with a lot of issues that are relevant to the Grade 6 to 8 group. Students will easily see themselves in David, and sympathize with his plight. Unfortunately, once again an author has chosen the wrong age for the main character. By making him a grade 6, she has possibly missed he Grade 7/8 audience that would be more interested in her book.
