Description: Camp Average tells the story of a group of 11-year-old boys sharing Cabin 10 at a six-week summer sports camp for boys. The actual name of the place is Camp Avalon, but the kids call it Camp Average, because they never win at any sport. And that's the way they like it. But this summer, Winston, the new camp director doesn't like losing, and he's not about to start. Led by the main protagonist, Mack, and his best friend Andre, the boys in Cabin 10 have a different plan. They're going to lose like they've never lost before, at every sport, but especially at the baseball tournament with the three nearby powerhouse camps. That way, they'll get their summer back! -- From statement provided by publisher.

Description: Convicted of thievery and transported from England to America, Oliver Cromwell Pitts, shackled to his fellow prisoners, endures inedible food, filthy conditions, and deadly storms on his voyage across the Atlantic. But the hazardous shipboard journey is nothing compared to the peril that waits for him on the colonial shores. In Annapolis, Oliver's indentured servitude is purchased by the foul, miserly Fitzhugh, who may have murdered another servant. On Fitzhugh's isolated tobacco farm, Oliver's only companion is an enslaved boy named Bara. Oliver and Bara become fast friends with one powerful goal: to escape Fitzhugh. Oliver hopes he can find his sister, Charity, brought somewhere in the colonies on a different ship. Bara dreams of reaching a community of free black people in the cypress swamp who may help him gain his liberty. But first the boys must flee Fitzhugh's plantation and outrun their brutal pursuer and the dangers that lurk in the swamp.
