Eleven-year-old Drew Montgomery has not, does not, and will not ever want a stupid old rabbit. All they do is sit in their cages, eat carrots, and poop. Then his annoying little sister blackmails him into hiding a bunny in his closet. She knows what really happened to his "stolen" bike and she's threatening to tell. Now Drew's in a real jam. If his "No pets!" parents find the rabbit or, worse, his sister blabs the truth, he'll be grounded till grade seven for sure.

And if that's not enough trouble, two girls at school drag him into a prank war that goes from bad to worse--and it's all the rabbit's fault. Plus, the weirdest girl in his class wants to be his science partner. If she tells him she wants to be his girlfriend, he just knows he's gonna die.

Drew must find a way to outwit the mean girls, wiggle out of the blackmail deal, and get rid of the rabbit before it destroys his bedroom and his life.

For ages 8+

You can’t bring a rabbit camping. That’s what eleven-year-old Drew Montgomery’s grandparents say when his annoying little sister wants to bring their pet rabbit, Tiny, along on the trip. And Drew agrees. It's bad enough that he will miss the release of the coolest video game of the year while he's stuck in a cramped travel trailer for a week with his grandparents and sister. But Tiny is certain to cause trouble. Plus there are bears and eagles in the woods. And what if Tiny gets lost?

But Libby smuggles the rabbit into the trailer anyway. Now Drew’s got to keep Tiny out of trouble. And that’s not easy to do with Libby always letting him out of the cage and a pair of rabbit-hating bullies ready to let their dog chomp him if he gets too close.

Top it off with never-ending rain, bloodthirsty mosquitos, a broken toilet, stinky outhouses, angry squirrels, terrible food, and an eye-gougingly boring “schedule of activities.” Drew is about ready to take the rabbit and hitchhike home before disaster really strikes.

Drew Montgomery is starting grade seven. New school. New kids. He can finally be cool. At least that’s what his best friend Quentin promises. He’s got a whole set of rules for how to be cool in middle school.

The first rule: “Come up with an awesome nickname.” So Quentin dubs Drew “The Drewster” and himself “Q.” He assures him this will pave the way to coolness.

Another rule: “Cool kids have girlfriends.” So now Drew must find himself a girlfriend. Even though he’d rather die than hold a girl’s hand. And kiss her? Gross!

And the last rule: “No Rabbits.” Now Drew has to pretend his pet rabbits, Tiny and Parsley, don’t exist or risk being uncool forever. But worse than that, his annoying little sister, Libby, has started a campaign to prove that rabbits are the best pets ever. Which wouldn’t be so bad, except Drew has to help her out. Is Drew going to get caught in a web of lies again?
