|Summary, etc.:|| Dedicated slacker Cameron Boxer thinks he has found gamer heaven: playing video games online for an audience (and money); but the Positive Action Group (the club he created to keep his parents off his back) keeps getting in the way with meetings and fund-raisers for worthy causes, and his friends keep turning to him for plans and girlfriend advice, plus Elvis the beaver is back chewing on the back wall--and all Cameron wants to do is to conquer the infamous level 13.

As they did in Slacker (2016), unintended consequences again haunt video gamer Cam Boxer, whose online audience skyrockets after he acquires a suppressed version of Guardians of Geldorf at a library discard sale and a live, game-addicted beaver for a sidekick. Making time for the game not only requires hiding his obsession from his parents but also passing off the presidency of the wildly popular Positive Action Group (PAG), a community service club at school, with the fib that he's failing eighth grade. It's a ploy that brings an unexpected (but guiltily accepted) side benefit in the form of homework done by sympathetic "paggers." Ultimately, his closest friends grow cheesed off, his health takes a serious turn for the worse, and all the deception comes home to roost in a big, public way when he's named class valedictorian. Korman uses multiple narrators to tell the tale, throws in plenty of comical antics, and pointedly ends Guardians of Geldorf not with a bang but an anticlimactic whimper. Oh wellâthe scene-stealing beaver alone is worth the price of admission. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
