The beloved New York Times bestselling author of the modern classic Frindle celebrates books and the joy of reading with a new school story to love!
 
Sixth grader Alec can’t put a good book down.
 
So when Principal Vance lays down the law—pay attention in class, or else—Alec takes action. He can’t lose all his reading time, so he starts a club. A club he intends to be the only member of. After all, reading isn’t a team sport, and no one would want to join something called the Losers Club, right? But as more and more kids find their way to Alec’s club—including his ex-friend turned bully and the girl Alec is maybe starting to like—Alec notices something. Real life might be messier than his favorite books, but it’s just as interesting.
 
With The Losers Club, Andrew Clements brings us a new school story that’s a love letter to books and to reading and that reminds us that sometimes the best stories are the ones that happen off the page—our own!
 
Praise for The Losers Club!
* "Clements’s latest is engaging and funny. A laugh-out-loud first purchase for all middle grade collections, and a solid read-aloud choice for classrooms."—School Library Journal, Starred Review

"Clements is out to celebrate reading in all its obsessiveness, and...tosses in shout-outs to a passel of other writers. [The Losers Club] gives fried bookworms everywhere the satisfaction of knowing that friends may desert them (if only temporarily) but books never will. "—The New York Times

Praise for Andrew Clements!

Both of Alec’s parents have gone back to work. All Alec wants to do is sit down and read his book in peace, but he is required to join an afterschool club. None of the clubs interest him, so he decides to make his own club, The Losers Club.

Since nobody would want to join a club for losers, Alec can read his books without anybody disturbing him. Or can he?

This story is enjoyable and surprising. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants a wonderful book filled with lessons of friendship and understanding.

The Losers Club is actually a club for people who likes to read. Alex thought of this because he liked to read and didn't have time to. - Leo, age 10
