Cameron Boxer is very happy to spend his life avoiding homework, hanging out with his friends, and gaming for hours in his basement. It's not too hard for him to get away with it . . . until he gets so caught up in one game that he almost lets his house burn down around him.
It's time for some serious damage control--so Cameron and his friends invent a fake school club that will make it seem like they're doing good deeds instead of slacking off. The problem? Some kids think the club is real--and Cameron is stuck being president.
Soon Cameron is part of a mission to save a beaver named Elvis from certain extinction. Along the way, he makes some new friends--and some powerful new enemies. The guy who never cared about anything is now at the center of everything . . . and it's going to take all his slacker skills to win this round.

                slacker is about a boy named Cameron (Cam) Boxer who is a slacker. His mom asks him to take food out of the oven but he doesn't listen. His parents get mad because the firemen axed down their door. They tell Cam to start a club. He starts a fake club called P.A.G., Positive Action Group. His parents are so proud of Cam. One person sees his 'club' on the school website and wants to sign up, she goes to Cam's house and tells him to text her when they have the first meeting. She ever gets a text so she tells the counselor who then becomes the clubs supervisor. The counselor makes P.A.G. a real club. This is a really good book about a community and a lifestyle.

                    The book “Slacker” is about a beaver named Cameron Boxer who is the ultimate slacker. He doesn’t play any instruments and never does his homework. All he does is game and game and game. Until one day his mom told him to take something out of the oven but he just ignored her to play his games. The house catches on fire but he doesn’t know. His parents get so mad they tell him if he doesn’t get into something else he won’t be able to play his video games. So Cam makes a fake club called P.A.G. (Positive Action Group) that he thought no one would care about. But people love the idea even the school counselor. Cam becomes the president of the club that he thought he wouldn’t have to do anything in. His life begins to change all thanks to a club he never even wanted to start. What happens at the end you’ll have to find out for yourself. I think it was a great book and love the layout and plot of the story. Great read for ages 9+.
