This book is about a boy whose name is Tom Gates and lives in England. Tom is a sneaky and outgoing fifth grader who encounters a lot of problems in life like being late for school. The book is written in the style of a diary and mostly takes place at Tom’s school and home. He enjoys all types of music and decides to start a band with his best friend Derrick. They write a song. Amy is a girl in the story who Tom likes. Unfortunately, Amy doesn’t like Tom in the beginning of the story. He asks her to a concert anyway. He is determined to get Amy to go with him. He ends up going to the concert to see his favorite band (DUDE3) with Amy. The next day he gets back to school. The principal ends up overhearing Tom singing his song and wants him to perform in the talent show.  Will Tom perform? You have to read to find out.

Opinion: 

I would recommend this book to others. It was a quick read. I couldn’t put it down. The book has a funny theme it appeals to all different types of humor. The author did a good job developing the characters. It was a good read for someone who wants an entertaining story. The book has no explicit content and is good for all readers over 8 years old.yesdevil
