From Our Editors

Ten-year-old Colin's sneakers smell really bad--but are they nasty enough to win the World's Stinkiest Sneakers title? Colin and his best friend have spent weeks working toward stinky perfection--not washing his feet, wearing no socks, jogging to get his feet juicy, and sleeping with his sneakers on--but now the sneakers are missing.

Editorial Reviews

"[This] has a lot going for it: an unusually perceptive portrayal of kids on the brink of teen-age concerns; narrator Vicki, who understands herself pretty well even amid unexpected complications; the charming logic of the sugar-baby project. Thoughtful, well-crafted, and sure to be popular." (The Kirkus Reviews)
