Dave Barry, "The Worst Night Ever"
A Young Readers' Event Presented by the Reading Garden Event SeriesPulitzer Prize-winning humor writer Dave Barry presents a new middle school misadventure starring Wyatt Palmer! Last year, Wyatt was the hero of middle school, having foiled a plot against the president of the United States. But now he's just another undersized freshman, hoping to fit in. Things start to go wrong when a pet ferret falls into the hands of the meanest kids at school. When Wyatt attempts a rescue mission at a party for the cool clique, he uncovers a dark and deadly secret. That's when Wyatt learns that some things are worse than being unpopular in high school. MUCH worse.
