Teen Review–Middle School: Ultimate Showdown by James Patterson and Julia Bergen

Ultimate showdown First edition.The book revolves around two main characters: Rafe K. and his sister, Georgia K. Rafe and Georgia both have different opinions on a lot of things like school and homework. The book takes place in various different places such as home and school. Having different opinions, Rafe and Georgia cannot stand to let the other win and neither of them want to back down. The book portrays both points of view in a funny and comical manner with great quotes and pictures.

The book is really funny and the reader can relate to most of the content. The book’s layout is very neat and appealing to the eye because both characters take turns explaining their side of the argument. I really liked the drawings associated with the situation and the drawing really shows the thoughts of the character (great for a visual learner). I didn’t like the fact that some of the discussions jumped out of nowhere. It could have been more of a pattern. Over all a good book.

The most memorable thing to me, even though it is not very significant, is the topic of school. Both brother and sister had such different opinions about is that it just popped into my head and stuck.
