“A fun, funny, and fast-paced summer camp romp full of pranks, plot-twists and goofy superpowers. Emerson’s adventures (and misadventures) teach us that the greatest power of all comes from the friends who push us to overcome our perceived limitations and make the most of every moment.” -John David Anderson, author of Ms. Bixby’s Last Day
Emerson can float . . . he just can’t do it very well.
Without his weighted vest and shoes, he’s in danger of drifting all the way up to the moon. His uncontrollable floating is classified as Reoccurring Incidents of the Strange Kind, or his RISK factor. It’s alienated him from non-RISK people throughout his life, and now it’s landed him in a government-mandated summer camp for RISK kids.
This camp is the last place Emerson wants to be, but when he meets the other boys in the Red Maple cabin, he’s surprised to realize that this summer might not be so bad after all. That is, until he discovers that his new time-traveling friend Murphy is hiding a secret that threatens all of their lives. Now, it’s up to Emerson and the Red Maple Boys to save themselves—and everyone like them.
