I thought this book was funny! It didn’t really teach me how to be rude, that’s just the title. It’s about how Peter is tired of being too nice, so he gets Robbie, the school tough guy, to give him lessons. It turns out Robbie has trouble reading (maybe that’s why he’s mean!) so Peter helps him find books that are good to read. In the end, Peter learns that it’s cool to be yourself, and Robbie doesnt get held back again because of his reading grades. I also love that this books talks about other good books to read, like sweet farts by Raymond bean!

    Hi Scotty, I wanted to thank you for reviewing my book, How to Be RUDE! I hope you had as much fun reading it as I had writing it! Watch for a new adventure with Peter and Robbie soon, titled How NOT to Publish A School Newspaper!

    Firstly, I am addicted to books. I’ll read for up to 12 hours non-stop which is extclay what I did on The Lost Hero. The Percy Jackson series was amazing. I finished about a book a day and I grew so attached to the characters. It makes our world look completely dull, drab, and boring. I’m so happy I began this series later rather than sooner cuz otherwise (for me) it would be torture for the wait. These books made me literally do chores to acquire Book-Credit. So, instead of an allowance, I’d get a book. (With libraries I HATE it when you have to give them back). I’m greatful that I didn’t start The Heroes of Olympus before the Son of Neptune came out because the cliff hanger on book one would’ve taken a year to be answered. The only thing that frustrates me was where the Son of Neptune ended. I wish it stretched just a little more because I’m all for the Annabeth and Percy team. And the humor? Really had some great one-liners and stuff. Throughout the whole series (plus Percy Jackson series too.) My patience is very thin so I’m praying these books end well (AKA Percy + Annabeth and Jason + Piper surviving). I encourage people to read these books cuz not only do you gain a good story, writing, and mental picture, you also gain knowledge on Greek and Roman god(desse)s.Please end well!
