Sleeping late. Hanging with friends. Freedom.
Ah, Summer…

Derek Dawson couldn’t wait to finish middle school. Unfortunately, a heroic attempt to impress his classmates on the last bus ride home sends him right back to the principal’s office. He’s been in trouble before, but nothing like this.

Working for free. Musty books. Grounded.
Summer Ruined!

Derek's summer leaves him stuck at home, working at the family store, and “volunteering” at a library. Torture, until he meets a colorful crew of kids in the next town that help him uncover his hidden talents. Will Derek finally be able to prove to his parents that he’s more than just a trouble-maker?

I’ve never fit in before. Football’s not my thing, video games aren’t my thing.
But now…now I’ve found my thing

From Publishers Weekly

08 July 2013 – On the last day of eighth grade, troublemaker Derek Dawson indulges in a prank that earns him community service for the summer. Now he has to spend time volunteering in the library and working at his family's sports store. To his surprise, Derek makes new friends and discovers an appreciation for old movies, books, and the performing arts. As he drifts away from his video game–obsessed pals, he throws himself into a new love of juggling, despite teasing and his family's lack of understanding. Derek has finally found his true calling, but will anyone believe he's cleaned up his act? Juggling enthusiast Daria delivers an entertaining tale aimed at promoting the publisher's goal of active learning through performing arts. The dialogue is occasionally stilted and a little mature for the characters' ages, and the underlying message lacks subtlety, especially when Derek has a falling-out with his old friends over their focus on online games and his involvement with the upcoming talent show. However, the book's sense of joy and wonder makes up for these minor drawbacks. Ages 6–12.
