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 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 - 5,000 points! Running in the hallway - 10,000 points! Pulling the fire alarm - 50,000 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.show more

Flap copy

This is the totally insane story of how I, Rafe Khatchadorian, - fought and overcame a diabolical teacher called the Dragon Lady, - sold my soul to the school bully, a dollar at a time, - wrestled with a real live bear bear, repeatedly, - fell kind of in "like" with the most popular girl in school, - went into the soda business and went bust, - and accidentally-on-purpose hurt all the people I care about. The worst days of my life were good sometimes. Bad sometimes. But mostly they were hilarious. See for yourself.show more

Back cover copy
