About the Book
When his school counselor insists that he needs better socialization skills after being stuffed into a locker by a bully, middle-schooler Nick finds himself, along with two other misfits, joining the school's lamest club: Safety Patrol. Illustrations.
From the Publisher
Nick is the shortest seventh-grader in the history of the world
(he''s pretty sure), doesn''t fit in with any groups or clubs (who
needs ''em?), and spends more time inside than outside his locker
(they''re roomier than you''d think).
Things only get worse when a well-intentioned guidance counselor
forces Nick to join the school''s lamest club-along with fellow
misfits Molly and Karl-in her quest to cure all three of their
"peer allergies." What starts off as a reluctant band of hopeless
oddballs morphs into an effective and empowered team ready to face
whatever middle school throws at them, including bullies, awkward
romance, zany adults, and a brave new world of surprising
Renowned cartoonist Michael Fry brings an unforgettable cast of
characters to life in an illustrated novel brimming with honesty,
humor, and heart.
