Just my rotten luck is another instalment from brilliant author James Patterson, who is revered for his use of comedy art in the books he writes. This book is no different, and is a hilarious thrill ride for everyone to enjoy, and goes something like this…

Meet Rafe Katchadorian, a weird kid in a school where drawing is all he’s good at. English and maths never was easy for Rafe, and the bullies of his middle school make him suffer for it. If that isn’t bad enough, his problems worsen as he is put in a special needs programme for kids who need help with learning. But when he makes a new friend, his school life changes forever.

Just my rotten luck is a wonderful story for all to enjoy. Once again James Patterson managed to include a slightly adult element to the book, making it a great read for anyone. The book displays a detailed sense of drama giving it a reality rarely seen in other children’s books.

I loved Just my rotten luck. It’s a spectacular piece of writing and I highly recommend it for the book’s comedy, drama, and all round believability. It’s a great read, and I’m glad it’s in my book collection.
