Things only get worse when a well-intentioned guidance counselor forces Nick to join the school's lamest club--along with fellow misfits Molly and Karl--in her quest to cure all three of their "peer allergies." What starts off as a reluctant band of hopeless oddballs morphs into an effective and empowered team ready to face whatever middle school throws at them, including bullies, awkward romance, zany adults, and a brave new world of surprising friendships.
Renowned cartoonist Michael Fry brings an unforgettable cast of characters to life in an illustrated novel brimming with honesty, humor, and heart. (Synopsis from Goodreads)

Funny. Teaches life lessons. Teaches friendship.
What stood out to you in this book?
Some people aren't what they seem because once you get to know them, they become nicer to you.
What did you think of the characters?
I thought that they had interesting personalities that were different. They were different because Molly was sort of a tall, crazy person who didn't like to be called names. Karl is a bit of a chubby, scared guy who just goes along with whatever anybody else says. Nick is short and he likes to be different by not doing what other people say but doing what he wants to do. And Roy, he is a mean person but in the end he turns out to be really sweet.
