When Maud's pet rat, Quentin, escapes in the middle of science class, it's the very last straw. Maud is transferred from Primrose Towers to Rotwood Middle School, to the delight of her perfect twin, Milly, but there's something strange about the pupils of Rotwood. Everyone's dressed as though it's Halloween and the school's motto is 'Because We Scare' - is ten-year-old Maud Montague monstrous enough for Rotwood?

This is not just for those dreaming of standing up in front of a comedy club. It's for anyone who wants to find the humor in their own life AND for those who want to be able to tell their friends a story and have them actually laugh. I LOVE it and learned from it. Read full review
