And then, of course, an iceberg appears, and the stage is set for the final scene.
From bestselling author Gordon Korman, the thrilling conclusion to the adventure aboard the unluckiest ship of all. The Titanic was supposed to be unsinkable - the largest passenger steamship in the world, one of the biggest and most luxurious ships ever to operate. For Paddy, Sophie, Juliana, and Alfie, the Titanic is full of mysteries - whether they're to be found in the opulent first-class cabins and promenade decks or the shadows in the underbelly of the ship. Secrets and plans are about to be revealed - only now disaster looms, and time is running out. The four of them need to find the truth, unmask the killer...and try not to go down with the ship.
It's bad enough that the team uniforms have pictures of toilet paper on them--thanks to their sponsor. But with a catcher who's afraid of the ball, a right fielder who falls asleep during the games, and a coach who knows zero about baseball, it looks like the Tigers are going right down the toilet!
In the world of Gordon Korman, dreamers, geniuses, and misfits do triumph, and in this book they triumph hilariously, wonderfully, and in the best Gordon Korman style. Readers will cheer for the Twinkie Squad, which includes Dave with an attitude problem who thinks everything stinks, Yolanda who skips school to watch movies, Gerald, the ten-year-old boy genius terrified of middle-school, hyperactive, wall-climbing Ric, and Anita who agrees with everybody because she can't think for herself. The kids are resentful and bored until Douglas, son of diplomats, visionary, dreamer--the most eccentric sixth-grader in Middle School, joins. Then Commando, smooth mover, basketball star, a short kid who fights bullies and wins, and a way cool guy--until he met Douglas is forced to join up too, thanks to hitting Douglas in the nose with a basketball. Only special students, students who get 45 minutes of group counseling after school every day, get to be in the group labeled Twinkie Squad by the rest of the school who calls them crazy losers and won't go near them. Commando never planned on being that special. But Douglas doesn't understand why Commando is worried. The Twinkie Squad, Douglas feels, has real potential. And he has Big Plans for it. Before Douglas is through, the school will smell like rotting fish, the principal will be on the verge of a nervous breakdown, and reality itself will be up for special discussion. Best of all, with Douglas's help, the Twinkie Squad will have achieved its potential--in ways nobody, not even Douglas Fairchild, could ever have anticipated. You'll start out laughing, laugh your way through the book, and end up high fiving The Twinkie Squad! The cover is described.
