Rachel Renee Russell we have the first book in her new series The Misadventures of Max Crumbly Locker hero. Readers who enjoy Dork Diaries or Diary of a Wimpy Kid will love Max Crumbly!
Max is headed off to middle school after being home schooled by his grandmother for all of his life. Life at the middle school isn't what he expected and even though he tries to be a super hero just like those he reads about in comic books he really isn't any kind of super hero.
The school bully keeps locking Max inside Max's school locker! He is saved by Erin, the best looking girl in the school, early in the day but when he finds himself locked inside his locker after school nobody is there to save him. It is a three day weekend and he begins to panic!
Amazingly he is able to break out of his locker finding himself in an old boiler room with no way out. He finds the cover for the ventilation system and he is soon crawling all over the school through the vents. He overhears three men who plan on stealing the school's new computers. He is sure he can stop them, but soon they are chasing him! As Max tries to get away from these not-so-smart thieves he finds himself in some crazy situations. Can Max save the school computers? Will he ever get out of the school? Will he remain the superhero of the ventilation system? You will be surprised how he finds a way to move about quickly in the vents.
I found myself giggling at Max and cheering for him all at the same time. I know that kids of all ages will love Max Crumbly, Rachel Renee Russell is an author that seems to really get middle schoolers.
After reading this book make a commitment to never bully anyone!
Happy Daily Reading
