    DescriptionJustin is going to start fourth grade--but first, he has to survive the summer. He "gets" to go to camp every day on a bus. He "gets" to experience all sorts of new things: Bugs. Mess hall food. Flip-flops (they hurt the space between his toes "and "they're hard to walk in). And (gulp!) swimming. Justin's little sister, Elizabeth, seems to deal with camp just fine. So do his friends. Justin is trying very hard not to be a worried kid anymore, especially when it comes to making friends at camp, including a new kid who is kind of . . . rough. After all, Justin is going to be in fourth grade. It's time to be brave. Right?

    Review quote
    "Vail seems to know exactly what third graders are thinking."--"School Library Journal""" "Hilarious, laugh-out-loud fun for middle-grade readers." --"Kirkus," StarredPraise for "Justin Case: School, Drool, and Other Daily Disasters" A "Kirkus Reviews" Best Book of 2010 An IndieBound Selection for Fall 2010 "The writing is sharp, unpredictably clever, and establishes third grade as a minefield of the absurd--which, is to say, real life."--Avi, Newbery Medalist "Vail employs easy, direct language in a rhythm, and syntax that captures the essence of a charming, lovable, and very believable boy. Readers transitioning to longer fiction will groan, sympathize, and laugh out loud in delight. Absolutely marvelous." --"Kirkus Reviews," starred review "Honest and full of heart, "Justin Case" is a story for an oft-ignored segment of kids: the sensitive, introverted, and observant. The format will remind many readers of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," but with fewer illustrations and a more reflective tone than Jeff Kinney's series. This is subtly satisfying storytelling."--"School Library Journal"
