Hey, my life was perfect before I nearly burned the house down. But the aliens were SO ready to be blasted away. Then, there was this funny noise, “This is the Sycamore Fire Department.” I was cooked. Gaming is my chosen lifestyle. I’ve arranged my life to do that, doing just enough work to get by. Now my parents have ordered me, Cameron Boxer, to find an interest that doesn’t have a screen! They want me to PARTICIPATE, to be INVOLVED! Out of desperation I form a fake club, but kids believe everything they see online and now the Positive Action Club is the most popular one at school. Kids love doing things like building a habitat for a beaver, painting the YMCA pool, and helping senior citizens. All the kids think I am a hero. Help!!!! (Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Award 2017-2018)
