Dan Versus Nature
author: Don Calame
Shy and scrawny Dan Weekes spends his time creating graphic novels inspired by his dream girl and looking out for his mom as she dates every man in the state of California. Then his mom drops a bomb: she and her latest beau, Hank, are engaged, and she’s sending her “two favorite men” on a survivalist camping trip to “bond.” Determined to trick Hank into showing his true — flawed — colors on the trip, Dan and his nerdy germaphobe best friend, Charlie, prepare a series of increasingly gross and embarrassing pranks. From screenwriter Don Calame comes an outrageously funny and raunchy tale of teen boys whose plans go awry.
“A journey through the wilderness that readers will never forget. . . . Perfect for the most reluctant of readers, this book is a sure-fire hit.” — School Library Journal
