First of all - Howard Boward. How fun is it to say his name? If there is a person out there with a real name like that - I want it & you are my hero! How to Survive Middle School and Monster Bots is really a fun read and perfect for middle grade. Although he is very smart and can be considered as "geeky", the bullying from other kids doesn't stop him from still thinking he is the best. When he doesn't get invited to a science club that has a contest in building robots, he will do anything to win.
I loved the life lesson that this novel represents. A lot of the times, middle grade characters are not portrayed the way they should be and it's good to see that this is not the case. Howard and other boys are a perfect example of that age group and definitely think that middle grade boys should check this out. Monster robots with a hidden life lesson? Definitely a winner!!!
