"Lions & Liars" by Kate Beasley



Frederick Fredrickson and his friends have a theory that some people are lions, some people are gazelles, and some people are meerkats. And then there’s the fleas on the meerkats.







Frederick is a flea. It’s true that there’s nothing really notable about him, but Frederick believes that there could be... maybe. When a joke goes awry,Frederick finds himself stranded at a disciplinary camp for boys. Mistaken for the ultimate bad boy, Dashiell Blackwood, he embraces his new role. But can Frederick become someone greater before a hurricane destroys the whole camp?
