The Loser List

The Loser List

by H.N. Kowitt
"Diary of a Wimpy Kid" watch out: Danny Shine and the other kids of Thorn Underwood Middle School aren't bestsellers yet, but they're on their way!

When Danny gets caught trying to cross his name off the "geek" list in the girls' bathroom, he's sent to detention. Bullies torment him mercilessly, until they discover that Danny can draw. He enjoys his new "bad boy" status, supplying tattoos and graffiti, until he's unknowingly drawn into a theft. Turns out the bullies took a comic book from Danny's favorite store. Can he steal it back before they get caught — and break off with the bullies before he gets in too deep?
