After living in the big city for a year, Rafe is ready for a fun summer at camp--except this camp is a summer school camp with classes and teachers and a bugle that wakes everyone up at the crack of dawn. Luckily, Rafe quickly makes friends with the outcast boys in "Loserville" Cabin: Smurf, Two Tunz, Dweebs, Cav, The Bombardier, Legend, and... Rafe's bunkmate, The Booger-Eater (otherwise known as Norman). Norman's had the nickname for years and puts up with endless teasing from the other kids. But Rafe soon realizes there is more to Norman than his nickname, and he just might be the kind of friend you want on your side when the boys from the Cool Cabin attack.
Subtle lessons about acceptance and friendship are woven into an epic and unforgettable summer of hi jinx, crushes, food fights, and crazy camp counselors, all with the hilarity and honesty readers have come to expect from James Patterson's bestselling Middle School series!

and more thought-provoking tale of childhood coping mechanisms and everyday
school and family realities, readers are drawn into a deeper understanding of
and compassion for the main characters."
