His fellow troop mates-Nosebleed, Specs, The Professor, and little-yet-lethal Ant Bite-are terrifying. But in between trust-building exercises and midnight escape attempts, a tenuous friendship grows between them. Which is lucky, because a Category 5 hurricane is coming and everyone will have to work together-lions and fleas alike-to survive!Kate Beasley outdoes herself in this hilarious, whip-smart tale of brotherhood, survival, and what it really means to be a friend.
