Worst Class Trip Ever by Dave Barry
(Disney-Hyperion, 2015, 224 pages)
A chaotic class trip to DC starts on the plane ride there, when an 8th grader named Wyatt and his friend Matt are convinced that these two suspicious men are carrying a detonator to possibly blow up the White House. They decided to take matters into their own hands (literally) and a few fellow classmates get involved. Are they going to be able to save the day?
If you are looking for a book with a hysterical, steady-paced story that has an unexpected twist, this might just be what you are looking for. It is not realistic but it is just plain fun. A great read for juvenile comedy fans.
