33 Minutes Until Morgan Sturtz Kicks My Butt

by Todd Hasak-Lowy


Book Summary

They used to be best friends, but somehow, the friendship was torn. Now Sam's ex-best-friend is planning to fight him, and while Sam has plenty of brains, Morgan is the athletic one. Sam has no chance. Does he?

Book Review

 This book has more depth than series like Big Nate and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, so it might appeal to readers who are ready for something a little more thoughtful with that similar attitude. It's nice to see a realistically presented book about friendships between boys in the context of middle school.
