The Losers Club
by Andrew Clements




Overview -
The beloved New York Times bestselling author of the modern classic Frindle celebrates books and the joy of reading with a new school story to love

Sixth grader Alec can't put a good book down.

So when Principal Vance lays down the law--pay attention in class, or else--Alec takes action. He can't lose all his reading time, so he starts a club. A club he intends to be the only member of. After all, reading isn't a team sport, and no one would want to join something called the Losers Club, right? But as more and more kids find their way to Alec's club--including his ex-friend turned bully and the girl Alec is maybe starting to like--Alec notices something. Real life might be messier than his favorite books, but it's just as interesting.

With The Losers Club, Andrew Clements brings us a new school story that's a love letter to books and to reading and that reminds us that sometimes the best stories are the ones that happen off the page--our own

Praise for The Losers Club
* Clements's latest is engaging and funny. A laugh-out-loud first purchase for all middle grade collections, and a solid read-aloud choice for classrooms.--School Library Journal, Starred Review

Clements is out to celebrate reading in all its obsessiveness, and...tosses in shout-outs to a passel of other writers. The Losers Club] gives fried bookworms everywhere the satisfaction of knowing that friends may desert them (if only temporarily) but books never will. --The New York Times

Praise for Andrew Clements
"Clements is a genius." --The New York Times

"We have never read an Andrew Clements book that we haven't loved." --The Washington Post
