Publisher's Summary

Bad luck is like a disease. If you catch it, all you can do is live with it. Bernie LeBaron is already a scrawny 13-year-old magnet for misfortune. But when his father pawns him off on relatives after his mother dies and he accidentally takes a picture of a man carrying a dead body through the woods, Bernie’s life becomes truly miserable. Now he must discover who the murderer is while staying out of trouble so that his father doesn’t take him away. Will the fates decide to salvage the miserable life of Bernie LeBaron? 

Perfect for fans of Gary D. Schmidt’s The Wednesday Wars and Okay for Now; Christopher Paul Curtis’ Bud, Not Buddy; Richard Peck’s A Year Down Yonder; and Jack Gantos’ Dead End in Norvelt.

Amazing performance.

Kevin does an amazing job bringing the characters to life in this coming of age story akin to Goosebumps without the horror.
