Description

Dave Davidson's heart is in the right place. He believes it's his mission to cure his friends of their fears. But his solutions are hare-brained at best and often come with unintended and hilarious consequences. Afraid of dancing at the school dance? Dave's got ways to fix that: sprain an ankle, eat expired food to get sick, or even get yourself suspended for a few days. Have a public speaking phobia? Dave can fix that for you too: get laryngitis, forge a note from a therapist, or get your friends to hold up cue cards.
This hilarious new novel will appeal to reluctant tween readers, especially boys.

Editorial Reviews

"Love this story! A group of 6th graders works together to get out of the things 6th graders find least desirable - speaking in public, dancing, etc. It's a cute read that upper elementary and middle school students are sure to identify with and enjoy!"

— Educator at Tuscaloosa Academy
