    *Starred Review* Using multiple narrators, Korman assembles a decidedly unappealing cast for a provocative take on the redemptive power of friends and pets. Dispatched by his internet mogul dad to a no-electronics wellness camp in deepest Arkansas after a series of dangerous pranks, bad boy Jett immediately dedicates himself to getting kicked out by breaking every rule and alienating everyone there. Rescuing a small but aggressive lizard from the camp's hot spring forces him to tone down his campaign, though, because he needs help not only keeping "Needles" hidden (the camp has a "no pets" rule), but since it, too, is repelled by the camp's all-veggie cuisine, finding a way to sneak out to the tiny town a few miles upriver for provisions. Enter an unlikely trio of preteen allies: self-righteous new ager Grace, hyperallergic sycophant Tyrell, and oddly secretive Brooklynne. What sets up as a (relatively) conventional camp story, however, swings into a wild loop with Jett's discovery that Ivory Novis, the camp's charismatic meditation "pathfinder," is hypnotizing adult guests. The stage is set for an awesome climactic night of chases, captures, and explosions—all of which leave Jett at least a tad less lonely, angry, and self-absorbed. Readers still won't be inclined to like him much, but they might be willing to cut him a little slack. Grades 5-7. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
