The book The Magnificent 12 the Call is by Michael Grant. The Magnificent 12 introduces us to twelve-year-old Mack MacAvoy, who's average in every way except for the many phobias he suffers from. One day, a three-thousand-year-old man named Grimluk appears in the boys' bathroom to inform Mack that he is one of the Magnificent Twelve. An evil force is on its way, and it's up to Mack to track down eleven other twelve-year-olds in order to stop it.
I enjoyed this book because it is great adventures and about a boy who is not scared about being bullied. The story of Mack, Grimluk, and the people and creatures they meet on their adventures is hilarious and imaginative. This is a wonderful book and I recommend it to all middle students.
