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!

                  This book was NOT as good as Dork Diaries but still OK. Max Crumbly is in the Dork Diaries world, just not the same school. That is what you need to know about this book.

                      awesome! he gets shut it his locker by a bully, but bursts out into the school's really old, abandoned boiler room. It was during afterhours. But then he saw robbers that were going to steal all the computers from the NEW computer lab. the bad buys were dumb. LOL. they've been on a chase for a while into the next book. the author's got a lotta good ideas! :)
