Welcome to the Oasis, a place to relax and rejuvenate, away from the distraction of screens and daily life! What better place to send a twelve-year-old voted Silicon Valley’s Number One Spoiled Brat? Jett is determined to keep his crown by refusing to eat their vegetarian meals, participating recklessly in activities around camp, and ignoring the other kids. When he stumbles onto Grace’s pet lizard, he puts aside his animosity to help Needles, almost becoming friends with the other kids, which disintegrates when Needles escapes. Then Jett discovers something big related to the huge house on the hill in Hedge Apple, the closest small town. The other kids refuse to help the spoiled brat, which sets into motion a string of stunts, the best way Jett knows to get attention.
This modern-day twist on The Boy Who Cried Wolf is a rollicking adventure tied up with a mystery. Jett is a bully every kid knows – the kid who always gets what he wants and who lords it over others, making it difficult for others to enjoy anything. The diverse characters are funny and loveable, and the story fast-paced and appealing to those who loved Carl Hiassen’s Chomp
