Joshua T. Bates is no stranger to trouble. First he flunked third grade and had to spend three months repeating it. Now he's been promoted to fourth, but that's when his problems really begin. Tommy Wilhelm, Joshua's sworn enemy, is the leader of the class. He's got everyone afraid of him, especially Joshua. Joshua will do anything to prove to Tommy that he's not a nerd. But that will take power. And where can a kid like Joshua get power?Shreve, Susan Richards is the author of 'Joshua T. Bates in Trouble Again' with ISBN 9780375806759 and ISBN 037580675X.
