Rodney Rathbone is back in this sequel to How to Beat the Bully Without Really Trying—but will his superstar reputation survive summer camp?

Rodney’s parents surprise him by signing him up for summer camp—pitting Rodney against the toughest kid at camp and an old nemesis out for revenge. Will Rodney get by with a little help from his friends?

From facing treacherous rapids to leading a nighttime spy mission, Rodney soon finds himself in the unlikely role of camp hero. How long it lasts will depend on whether a former adversary gets her way…

Fun, exciting, and full of surprises, the “fast-moving story lines and larger-than-life characters” will make you “sit up and take notice” (School Library Journal)!
