When eighth-grader Cameron Boxer creates the Positive Action Group at school he intends it as a diversion to fool his parents, teachers, and sister into letting him continue to concentrate on his video-gaming--but before he knows it other kids are taking it seriously, and soon he finds himself president of the P.A.G., and involved in community service, so the boy who never cared about anything is now the center of everything, whether he likes it or not.

If you like books where the pretty and popular high school cheerleader gets to be a bully, commit all kinds of crimes, gets away with everything and is rewarded in the end, then this book is for you. In this day of anti-bullying campaigns, a book by a popular author that allows a bully to never be punished just because she's female, should never have been published. And sending her to Harvard, a law school, after all the crimes she committed to get there, was a reward for law breaking.

Don't know where Gordon Korman's head is at but this ending ruined what could have been an otherwise good book.

Cameron Boxer is a real slacker. He loves to play video games and hang out with his friends. He doesn’t do his homework or any other school activities. Life as he knows it all comes to an abrupt halt when he almost burns the house down. Cameron was playing video games and forgot about the baked ziti that his mom left in the oven for him. The kitchen caught on fire and Cameron didn’t even know the fire was burning until the firemen broke down the door to rescue him. Now his parents are beyond angry and have grounded Cameron. They have taken away his video game privileges and given him some ultimatums about homework and volunteering. Cameron, always the slacker, will find a way to get his old life back.
