Kenny Cartwright seems to be nothing more than a human lab rat to his neighbor, Rich Peterson. Although the boys have a different definition of what it means to be “best friends,” Kenny is always a willing candidate to try Rich’s potentially dangerous ideas. One day, while exploring a hill in the woods, the two boys stumble across an alarming plan of attack, aimed directly at them. Regardless of their differences, Kenny and Rich must work out the true meaning of friendship. The only way the two can survive is to unify—their lives depend on it. Their usually laid back summer will quickly turn disastrous if the two don’t work together. Their once quiet town won’t be safe again until the boys figure out their enemy’s master plan. Do they wave the white flag and give up? Or do the boys prepare for war? There are big decisions to be made for Kenny and Rich. The clock is ticking.

The chapters, each and every one, were riveting. I literally could not put this book down and literally didn’t until I had finished. Cleverly written with equally cleverly-named chapters! I look forward to the next!

4th and 5th grade students loved reading KCC, so did I. Each chapter starts with a famous quote leading into a short story, which makes the book am easy read especially for reluctant readers. All of the students, girls and boys alike were enthralled by Rich’s fun attitude, ideas and quick wit. At times I could hear students laughing as they read! They were eager to read the next adventure. This is a great read! I highly recommend it for every one. Adults too!

I live in a small New England town and could picture all of this happening. I laughed out loud reading it to my granddaughter.

5.0 out of 5 starsthis book is funny! Be warned

December 17, 2017

Format: Kindle Edition

I’m 59 years old, this book is funny! Be warned, if you read this book in bed sleep will not come to either you or your partner. You will stay awake from the splitting belly laughter and your partner will ultimately also receive no sleep. In addition, when you’re through reading it, your partner will want to give it a read and the no-sleep cycle for both of you will begin. Very well written and throughly captures moments that most of us have encountered in our youth. If you like to laugh and reminisce about days gone by, this is a book for you! What a fun read!

Glimpse into the mind of a boy as he gets himself into and out of trouble. Great book for elementary students!…short chapters that read as stand-alone short stories but are joined together to create a complete book that keep kids’ attention.
I bought this book for all of my kids from 1st to 6th grade, but it’s pretty much perfect for my 4th grade son!

This is one of the funniest books I have ever read. Although it is a book for elementary and middle school kids, I enjoyed it immensely as an adult.

Danny Meyers is a kid with a plan—he’s smart, goal-oriented, and the definition of a goody-two-shoes. So how does an A+ student get mixed up with the school bully? In the summer of 1995, Danny is about to learn that people aren’t always what they seem, that sometimes the best-laid plans fail, and that the ordinary events of day-to-day life can be important—even if you don’t think so at the time. Danny is on the verge of turning a corner and he won’t be able to go back. But what he learns after turning that corner, and a few more, just might help him make sense of things after all.
