About the Book
Middle school is off to a rocky start for Marvin Watson. Doomed to misfit status, his only friends are a girl with major orthodontics, the smelliest boy in school, and the trio of sarcastic man-sized moths that live in his attic.

No one said middle school would be easy! Also, no one said that Marvin's town would be threatened by mutant bugs, including a very hungry, Shakespeare-quoting spider. But life in the suburbs is full of surprises. Will Marvin be the one to unravel the mystery behind the mutants and save the town? Or will he be too busy with the real threat: his first school dance?!

This hilarious send-up of middle school has the humor of James Patterson's I Funny, the underdog hero of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and the zany action of NERDS... and features illustrations by co-author Matthew Holm, New York Times bestselling illustrator of Babymouse, Squish, and Sunny Side Up.

Plus: talking moths.

My Take on the Book
This was a great story that any person that has survived middle school will enjoy. The book had a ton of great humor and along with the illustrations and characters that were memorable, you will find that this book is a quick read from beginning to end. On top of the humor that you get in the book you also get some strange happenings in the main characters' town with mutant bugs and even stranger happenings in the middle school itself. This shows coming of age in a whole new light!
