On the first day of school, Artie falls out of his bed and hits his head. Hard. He tells his mom he’s dizzy and she says:

“You’re just worried about your first day in a new school.”

At breakfast, his little brother, Eddie, splashes syrup in his hair, and there’s no time to wash it. Artie has to go to school with syrup-hair. And then, on the way there, he gets splashed by a puddle that makes him look like he wet his pants. It’s not just the first day of school; it’s the worst day of school.

On the second day of school, Artie falls out of bed and hits his head. Hard. He tells his mom he’s dizzy and she says:
“You’re just worried about your first day in a new school.”

Huh? Today is just like the day before. Can Artie find a way to change it, before it’s the first day of school…forever?

    " The book is pretty cool! But the ending could have been better, and that is why I am giving it 4 stars. However, the story was so awesome in general that I could hardly drop the book until I finished reading it =] "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 2/16/2014

    " This was an enjoyable story to read with just enough spooky, scary stuff to keep fans of Stine interested but not enough to be off-putting to those of us who don't like spooky, scary stuff! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon Clark | 2/3/2014

    " LOVED IT-funny, wanted to find out what was going to happen AND never saw it coming at the end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana Persson-zora | 1/30/2014

    " This book is one of the weirdest books I ever read about going to a new school. I rate it 4/5 because some of it makes sense, and some of them don't make sense like it has a graveyard under the school. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lidojack | 1/30/2014

    " I thought this book was quite interesting because of the beginning and it repeats over and over again. I started to wonder why is his day starting over again. Then I found out something really interesting and it surprised me. It was so weird because it put in the perspective of the "main character" and I thought to myself something weird is happening. Then I am shocked when I am almost done with the book to find out that it was just a video game played by someone else. It really shocked me because it had the P.o.V set up and it changed to another P.o.V. It was interesting to read though. "

    " Wade said this book is very good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Franki Sibberson | 1/20/2014

    " A fun new R.L. Stine book. I can already think of kids to hand it to. I love the Ground-Hog's day idea and love the way that it plays out. I think kids will love this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kesha | 1/7/2014

    " This is a fun read that is predictable, yet entertaining. Share with young readers and watch their expressions as their predictions either come true or they make fix-ups. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 12/20/2013

    " Yikes! Creepy! It sounds like a normal day as a new student in a new town. But something's not right, the day repeats forever but he ends up going through a terrible day. I think this book is the sort of book that should be warned. Do not red this at night, personal experience. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lissette Averhoff | 12/3/2013

    " It is very engaging and has a surprise ending. The kids are reading it and they're totally into it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/3/2013

    " I read this book because the kids in my class were really into suspense this year and they wanted me to add more titles to the library. Like most R.L. Stine books, it's sort of thrilling, but not the greatest literature out there. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lesley Strom | 10/8/2013

    " Listened to this with my son. He really got into it but I felt like it got a little repetitive. However I did enjoy R.L. Stine when I was his age so he still has it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anne Smith | 7/17/2013

    " This book made me think of the movie Groundhog Day. I didn't like the movie too much and I didn't like this book much either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colby | 5/24/2013

    " It's an interesting book, I feel bad for the kid though.=( "

    " im in the middle of reading it its a amzaing book so far. i like the book. people add me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela | 3/15/2012

    " I thought I'd give him another chance. I listened to the first of three discs on the audio and found myself reluctant to put in the next disc. The straight-forward writing and lack of complexity appeals to some young readers, but is bland to my over-exposed palate. Leave it for the kids, I say! "
