Review: For a history class assignment, Hal Rifkind must document his sixth-grade year in journal entries for a reader in the future. He hates his new "Cartboy" nickname, given to him when he started using a grocery cart for his school books. He nearly earns an F in history, unsuccessfully campaigns for a room of his own, adjusts to a vegan diet, and temporarily loses his best friend. What else could possibly go wrong? Funny cartoon timelines and occasional doodles enhance the quirky humor. Lovers of The Wimpy Kid will be hooked on this book as well.
