Memoir of Seventh Grade probably means more if you attended this school at about this time.

While parts of the book connected, I'd say in general that you'd find this book more interesting if you'd attended Central Arkansas Christian Academy at roughly the same time as Kevin Brockmeier. A lot of the incidents mentioned kind of seem like you'd have had to have been there and experienced them to fully appreciate them. And then the book would be a memory jogger.
I enjoyed his semi-humorous tone. And while this memoir wasn't for me, his tone suggests to me (if this tone is true of his other work) that I might enjoy reading some fiction by Kevin Brockmeier.
