At first it seems as though Maxie, Rosie, and Earl have nothing in common. Maxie is too smart for his own good, Rosie is a born tattler, and Earl can’t stop cracking up when he reads out loud in class.

"Here’s a book so funny, readers can’t help but laugh out loud. Three misfits decide to skip school–and then worry all weekend they will be found out.

A good read aloud, too."– Booklist, starred review
