HarperCollins, 2012

Jake Semple and E.D. Applewhite are back, this time facing a financial meltdown E.D.'s father has called ""the end of the world "" Famously creative Randolph Applewhite hatches a plan to save the family from poverty and starvation: They will turn the sixteen acres of their family compound, Wit's End, into "Eureka ," a summer camp for creative children. The plan will demand the all-out efforts of the whole family, including Jake, who has managed to survive his first year in their home school. The whole thing "seems" like a good idea . . .

. . . until--in the midst of the ordinary chaos of temperamental artists; talented, intense, headstrong campers; a dead possum; and rampaging goats--anonymous, threatening notes begin mysteriously appearing in the Applewhites' roadside mailbox. Can E.D., Jake, and the "Eureka " campers prevent a head-on collision with disaster?

In this hilarious, masterful sequel to Stephanie S. Tolan's Newbery Honor Book, "Surviving the Applewhites," the Applewhite family returns, more outrageous than ever.
