Description


A brand-new series from #1 New York Times bestselling Dork Diaries author Rachel Renee Russell! Introducing Max Crumbly!

Max Crumbly is about to face the scariest place he’s ever been: South Ridge Middle School.

There’s a lot that’s great about his new school, but there’s also one big problem—Doug, the school bully whose hobby is stuffing Max in his locker.

If only Max could be like the hero in his favorite comics. Unfortunately, Max’s uncanny, almost superhuman ability to smell pizza from a block away won’t exactly save any lives or foil bad guys.

But that doesn’t mean Max won’t do his best to be the hero his school needs!

About the Author


Rachel Renée Russell is an attorney who prefers writing tween books to legal briefs. (Mainly because books are a lot more fun and pajamas and bunny slippers aren’t allowed in court.) Rachel lives in Chantilly, Virginia.

Praise For…


Poor Max Crumbly! Stuffed in his locker for the second time in one day! Thinking he might never get out,
Max decides to chronicle his first two weeks of eighth grade at South Ridge Middle School in his
journal—at least then there will be a record of what happened when his body is found. Coming from seven
years of homeschooling, Max dreamed of being a superhero here; instead, he’s school-bully Doug “Thug”
Thurston’s new favorite target. Luckily, Erin Madison rescued Max from his first involuntary locker
vacation, but the next time Thug strikes is after everyone has left for a three-day weekend. Enduring a few
hours of cramped conditions, Max escapes through the back of his locker, where he crawls through
ductwork, foils a robbery, and saves the school’s new computers! This wacky middle-school misadventure
will delight Wimpy Kid and Tom Gates fans, particularly with its humorous tone and illustrations.
Russell’s new series boasts a memorable character in Max Crumbly, who is capable of rivaling Dork
Diaries’ Nikki Maxwell.
HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Russell’s enormously popular Dork Diaries pushed her to the top of
the best-seller list. Expect no less from her new series.
