Unbelievably Boring Bartholomew

James Patterson, Duane Swierczynski (As told to), Xavier Bonet (Illustrator)
There's more than meets the eye in James Patterson's newest illustrated middle grade novel--a book so fun kids will actually put down their games to read it! Invisible creatures are attacking the school, and 12-year-old Bartholomew Bean is the only one who can stop them! Okay, so maybe Bart is only a hero in the video game app he created. But if he reveals his identity as the genius behind the game, he'll become the most popular kid in school! Or he could secretly use the game to get back at his bullies... Press Button A: Reveal Press Button B: Revenge Which would you choose?

The book has an accessible storyline immersed in the world as it currently is with its love affair with all things cyber (it will be interesting to see how well this book ages). The main character is believable and relatable. As my purposes for reading are to see how my students might like it and how well it might facilitate English language acquisition, I would have to say it would be a most welcome addition to my English language library, newly christened the "Nancy Barger English Language Learning Collection," named for my mother who at the age of 90 is still reading every day.
