There are many reasons I enjoyed this book but the main reason is Max's huge imagination. He over-exaggerates and makes the problem more difficult then it needs to be.
I realized that Max and I have a big connection. For example, Max's dad died when he was six like mine. Max's mom has a boyfriend also like mine. This helped me really understand how Max felt. The part I cannot stand is when Max ran away because of his mom's boyfriend. I know I would never do that. I feel sad for Max because reading the book made me realize that he has many problems like his friends and bullies. There is a friend, Jenny, who changes. First, she is Max's friend, she is his enemy and, finally, they are not friends anymore.
I recommend this book to 3to 5thth graders or people who think they have troubles or a hard life. Reading this book can help you laugh at your problems. This book is part of a series of Dear Max, Bravo Max, and Relax Max.
