Middle School #10: From Hero to Zero

Prince of misfits Rafe is ruling the school! But you know what they say: the higher you climb, the harder you fall. And when Rafe jets off on a class trip to London, his fortunes plummet faster than the Oblivion roller coaster. Ouch! First off, he’s sharing a room with scary bully Miller the Killer. Then Rafe’s forced to work on a class project with his crush, Jeanne, and her disgustingly perfect boyfriend. Groan. Think that’s enough bad luck for one trip? Not a chance. Utter chaos is about to hit – and the grumpy principal will be watching it all…

  • Top series that is now a film starring Griffin Gluck
