Middle School: Too Uncool for School

Middle School: Too Uncool for School

Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Rafe is finally getting a taste of the cool life – but his problems are red-hot.


Rafe Khatchadorian has never been cool. But all that changes when he becomes the guitarist in an awesome rock band and wrangles a part-time job at Hills Village's trendiest new coffee shop slash yoga studio. No more being at the bottom of middle school food chain – Rafe is finally going to be popular!

He just has two teeny problems: the awesome rock band is led by none other than the school bully. And the band actually isn't awesome – they absolutely stink, and Rafe has to whip them into shape for the Best Band Competition.

With Rafe's newfound coolness on the line, will he find a way to hit the stage in style, or is he doomed to dorkdom forever?
