Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life
Need something to bring back the Gilmore Girls nostalgia more than Luke’s coffee to hold you over until the A Year in the Life debuts? Lorelai Gilmore, otherwise known as Lauren Graham, stars in Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life. The film is the first movie based on the best-selling book series from James Patterson.
Patterson is best known for his Alex Cross and Women’s Murder Club books, but he has also earned a slew of awards for the Middle School series. While the prolific author’s name is prominently displayed on each book’s cover, he has a co-author on each one. Chris Tebbetts co-wrote this particular book with Patterson.
Patterson’s books have been made into several films and television shows, including Zoo, which was recently picked up for a third season by CBS. The author thinks this film is the best adaptation yet.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $7.8 million for Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life.
