Level 13: 10/08/19
Level 13 by Gordon Korman is the sequel to Slacker (2016). The positive action group Cameron Boxer created as a way to be in a club without actually being in a club has taken on a life of its own. Now it's large enough to basically run itself, so he's hoping he can finally get back to his true passion — video games. Recently he's gotten into live streaming and hopes to reach the coveted 50,000 subscribers.
Meanwhile, Daphne, an over enthusiastic PAG member has noticed the local beaver celebrity isn't gaining back his weight now that winter is over. She's worried something is wrong with him. He, meanwhile, has gotten addicted to watching Cameron play video games in his basement.
Together, Cameron and Elvis, become the online sensation, GameFox229. Fox is supposed to be a reference to the Zorro mask Cameron wears to conceal his identity. But everyone seems to think it refers to Elvis, who clearly isn't a fox.
In the first book, PAG's focus was the saving of the freeway offramp to the town (as well as Elvis's woodland home). This time, the non-Elvis goal is the rebuilding of the public library as the current on is literally falling apart.
Cameron's near god-like status at school, his online fame, and the tenacity of other PAG members will make everything possible. But it'll be a fine line and a crazy schedule to juggle.
I don't know if a third book is planned, but I will definitely read it should there be one.
