Sixth grader Alec loves to read, even when he should be paying attention in class or doing his homework. His grades are suffering and summer school is a distinct possibility. When his after school program requires that students must either be doing homework or involved in a club, Alec decides to start his own club and name it the Losers Club. Certain no one other than co-founder and new student Nina will want to join, he sees this as his chance to have hours of uninterrupted reading time under the guise of club activity. To Alec’s surprise, however, the name of the club doesn’t seem to be a turn-off, even for school bully Kent, and he may not be the loser he thought. An insightful look into middle grade life by bestselling author Andrew Clements!
