Nerd Camp 2.0
Last summer couldn’t have been more amazing for Gabe. For six glorious weeks, he was immersed in rigorous learning at the Summer Center for Gifted Enrichment, aka Nerd Camp. With summer on its way, so is Nerd Camp—2.0. But there’s a twist this year, a variable…a curveball no one could have anticipated.
Zack, Gabe’s cool stepbrother, was all set to attend a nearby sleepaway camp, but a recent wildfire destroyed that campground. Now Zack’s entire camp will be sharing the same space as the nerd camp. The summer of erudite fun that Gabe dreamed about all year has now become a geek’s nightmare, a veritable war. Can these two camps—and these two brothers—survive the summer?
