The beloved New York Times bestselling author of the modern classic Frindle celebrates books and the joy of reading with a new school story to love!
Sixth grader Alec can’t put a good book down.
So when Principal Vance lays down the law—pay attention in class, or else—Alec takes action. He can’t lose all his reading time, so he starts a club. A club he intends to be the only member of. After all, reading isn’t a team sport, and no one would want to join something called the Losers Club, right? But as more and more kids find their way to Alec’s club—including his ex-friend turned bully and the girl Alec is maybe starting to like—Alec notices something. Real life might be messier than his favorite books, but it’s just as interesting.
With The Losers Club, Andrew Clements brings us a new school story that’s a love letter to books and to reading and that reminds us that sometimes the best stories are the ones that happen off the page—our own!

O.k, so you guys have to read this book! It's so cool and kinda funny. It's about a boy who just want's to read in a after school program. But his teachers don't really like that idea. Read this book for more.

Quite a good read! I love how this book combines suspense, every day life, and good humor to create one of the best books ever!

This was an amazing read! I really loved it and felt like I could relate to the character. I like how this book mixes suspense, reality, and humor to create an amazing read!

In this book I felt like I was the character. I feel like I was right there in the book. When there was a bully I wanted to defend Alec, when he didn't know what to do I wanted to help him. I recommend this book for anyone and everyone and I am sure that you will all like it.

I rocamend this book 📖 because it’s historical and I think the world would read it🙃🙂

Alec is always getting in trouble for reading when he's supposed to be paying attention in class. He can't put a good book down, which unfortunately leads to the Principal's decision that Alec has to pay attention or else. In order to legitimately squeeze in his reading time he starts a club in his after-school program. A club where he only reads, and is called the Loser's Club so no one else will join. But before he knows it the club starts to grow....and he starts to learn that real life can be pretty interesting too. I really liked this book! I felt like it was a really unique tale, I liked reading about a boy who is so passionate about reading. I recommend this book to elementary school kids and up, and to both girls and boys. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

I totally recommend this book to you . You should read this book because it is funny, hilarious, and cool for kids all ages. It is about a boy who just wants to read his book, but there is always something blocking his way. Read this book to learn more. Enjoy, and bye for now!
