Kate says: So much fun! Realistic teen fiction at its finest. Believable, funny, and right on target. Maxwell Cobb has always been just Max until he receives an invitation from The Chaos Club, an underground organization that has been pulling pranks at Ashville High School for over 30 years. The hilarious yet vindictive prank war that ensues changes the people involved in ways they never could have imagined. Can't wait to see what Kurt Dinan will do next.
