Book 1: New Kid Catastrophes

TJ Finkelstein is your average seventh grader trying to survive junior high. Average except for . . .

  • just moving from the Midwest to crazy, money-is-no-object Malibu, California.
  • Becoming mortal enemies with the school’s most popular girl, who stars on the Dizzy Channel.
  • Oh yeah, and being followed around by two goofball boys from the 23rd century!

That’s right—Herby and Tuna have traveled back in time to study TJ for a class project. Unfortunately, she is the only one who can see them. And unfortunatelier (don’t try that word on your English teacher), their “help,” which involves using whacked-out 23rd-centur gadgets, only leads to more mayhem and plenty of side-splitting laughter. Join this unlikely trio as they stumble into one hilarious catastrophe after another . . . while accidentally learning the importance of such core values as love, honesty, patience, and kindness.
