9780060579395: Applewhites at Wit's End

Jack Semple and E.D. Applewhite are back, in this middle-grade sequel to Stephanie S. Tolan’s Newbery Honor Book Surviving the Applewhites.

Teenager E.D., the not so artistic, not at all eccentric member of the unconventional Applewhite clan, can't believe the plan her father has hatched to save the family from financial disaster. He’s decided to transform their rural North Carolina farm into a summer camp for creative children.

Soon the farm is packed with temperamental artists, out-of-control campers, and an even more out-of-control goat. It's all a little too much for structure-loving E.D., even before threatening notes begin appearing in the family mailbox. Together with Jake Semple--the boy who survived his first year in the Applewhites' home school—she's determined to save the camp and the family from disaster.

Like Carl Hiassan’s Chomp, Applewhites at Wit's End combines outrageous humor and the frustrations and joys of being part of a family.

From the Back Cover:

Jake Semple and E.D. Applewhite are back, this time facing a financial meltdown E.D.'s father has called "the end of the world!" Famously creative Randolph Applewhite hatches a plan to save the family from poverty and starvation: They will turn the sixteen acres of their family compound, Wit's End, into Eureka!, a summer camp for creative children. The plan will demand the all-out efforts of the whole family, including Jake, who has managed to survive his first year in their home school. The whole thing seems like a good idea . . .

. . . until—in the midst of the ordinary chaos of temperamental artists; talented, intense, headstrong campers; a dead possum; and rampaging goats—anonymous, threatening notes begin mysteriously appearing in the Applewhites' roadside mailbox. Can E.D., Jake, and the Eureka! campers prevent a head-on collision with disaster?

In this hilarious, masterful sequel to Stephanie S. Tolan's Newbery Honor Book, Surviving the Applewhites, the Applewhite family returns, more outrageous than ever.
