Waiting on Wednesday: Slacker by Gordon Korman

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles we can't wait to release.

Slacker by Gordon Korman. 240 p. Scholastic Inc. April 26, 2016. 9780545823159.

Publisher synopsis: Cameron Boxer is very happy to spend his life avoiding homework, hanging out with his friends, and gaming for hours in his basement. It's not too hard for him to get away with it . . . until he gets so caught up in one game that he almost lets his house burn down around him.
It's time for some serious damage control--so Cameron and his friends invent a fake school club that will make it seem like they're doing good deeds instead of slacking off. The problem? Some kids think the club is real--and Cameron is stuck being president.
Soon Cameron is part of a mission to save a beaver named Elvis from certain extinction. Along the way, he makes some new friends--and some powerful new enemies. The guy who never cared about anything is now at the center of everything . . . and it's going to take all his slacker skills to win this round.

Anything by Gordon Korman is an automatic purchase for me. My kids just love his books. I don't even have to read them for RA. All I have to say is that there's a new Korman book and my kids are sold. But I do read them.
