The Celebrities of Summer

Thirteen year-old Will Ryerson has come to terms with the fact that he's not much of an athlete, will never be part of the school's "cool" crowd and is an average student at best. When he discovers that he's failed 8th grade science, he is devastated. He sits in the back of his summer course classroom and keeps to himself.

But when his beloved dog Riley goes missing, Will is surprised to find that a few of his classmates come to his aid. Equipped with cameras, cell phones and the latest gadgets, his new buddies help him find his dog, and at the same time open a whole new world to Will: the world of the internet. Using YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and all that the internet has to offer, the new friends soon find themselves at the center of attention as they embark on an adventure that will propel them way beyond the "cool" kids and into the ranks of celebrity status.

This unique book is by Ofer Aronskind. Ofer was born in Tel Aviv, Israel and came to the United States at the age of six. He grew up in Little Neck Queens NYC and now lives in Short Hills, New Jersey with his three sons.
