       Additional Information  

    Josh Jolly doesn't know what to expect from his sixth-grade year, and this cryptic message from his mystic board, which he consults as part of his morning routine, is no help at all. But he certainly doesn't expect to be teamed up with the snooty Kate Haskell, the oddball Rainy Day, and the oversized genius Bill Dumper for a class project on the first day. He doesn't expect these unlikely characters to become his best friends, and he definitely doesn't expect their friendship to have such an impact on their sleepy town of Westlake. Why doesn't the board warn him?

    When Josh was born at the local carnival, his fortune-telling aunt Julie predicted he would one day make Westlake famous. No one believed her. Now, twelve years later, anyone meeting Josh, a laid-back, freewheeling, frozen-food-eating kid, still can't believe her. But Josh is about to prove them all wrong.

    John Halliday brings a fresh, funny voice to middle school as Josh and his friends burst on to the scene and unwittingly shake things up. PredicKtions keeps the laughs and surprises coming as these four sixth graders find their way to friendship.
