In the first book, Jack is in the 7th grade and wants to be popular middle school, like most kids, but the activities that Jack is involved in, doesn’t seem to bring him popularity that he’s looking for. 

In the second book Jack is in his last year of middle school in 8th grade, and he still wants more popularity. Jack is voted to be on his school’s sports team to compete against other schools in the same district for a school fundraiser. 

Now Jack is in his second semester and last year in middle school.  A continuation of him trying to have all eyes on him. Jack actually joins the news club at school. And he agrees to do some Would You Rather’s. All of the challenges quite slimy, messy, cold, and maybe a little scary, if the unknown scares you. Nothing too scary, just really funny at the end of the day!






Middle School, Diary of a, Funny,

A favorite moment:  I loved to see the kids read a few pages from the book then immediately turn around and beg their parents to buy the book. 

Another favorite moment: A young lady bought the book on Saturday and came back on Sunday and and told me how much she was enjoying the book.

“Choates offers a believable protagonist in Jack as a kind of middle school Everykid: somewhat nerdy, painfully insecure, needing to belong where it counts, and not above desperate lying.”- Kirkus Reviews


"A promising YA debut…"-Kirkus Reviews
