My son loved this book so much he insisted I read it, too, and I’m glad he did! Middle School’s a Drag is hilarious and each character has something magical to add to the story. For me, the most important part of the book is a message that is so important for all children and grownups! Learning to accept yourself and those around you exactly as they are is a lesson that never gets old and can’t be over taught!
My nine year old son wanted to add his own review, which I think speaks volumes! “This hilarious book is so nice, happy, and fun. I recommend Greg Howard’s Middle School’s a Drag to everyone.”
I LOVED this book! It’s touching, hilarious, adventurous, moving, and just a downright delight, but it’s also an important story. The lives of Mikey, his friends and family are explored with such positive, knowing and fine-tuned detail that you’ll find yourself reflecting on it long after you’ve finished this marvel of a read. To have a character like Coco Caliente, a young drag queen readers haven’t seen presented with such depth and love before, make this an instant go-to wonder for kids and adults of all ages! Put this on your must-read list now!
Howard tells a captivating story of real middle school kids while keeping the reader laughing until our heart aches just a bit. Then we laugh a little more. The main character Michael Pruitt has big dreams and a thousand plans but is in the strange journey of adolescence. Howard has produced characters that our young readers will love meeting and will recognize as their friends. We need our young people to meet characters with depth and color like Michael, Julian, Colton, CoCo and Lyla! A wonderful picture of middle school today.
I just finished this book and it is one of the best books I have ever read! I am so thrilled with it, I want it to be a series. I really like that all of the characters embrace themselves and had a fun time through the happy and sad moments. In the end their talents shine through! In fact what are you doing reading these comments, GO READ THIS BOOK!!!
Delightfully entertaining read about a highly creative young entrepreneur. Lovable characters vividly imagined. The book is written for a youthful audience but it is also wonderfully entertaining for the young at heart and the submersed adolescent in everyone of any age.
Fun middle grade adventure with plenty of charm and even more pizazz! I found myself inspired by Mikey's determination and Coco Caliente's confidence and fearlessness. Sweet story of friendship and acceptance.
