This book is very funny, it is about a boy is trying to get money and dresses up and acts like a girl in girl scouts Read on to laugh as hard as you could. When I read this, I couldn t stop myself from comparing Jeremy his buddy Slater to Lucy Ethel I LOVE LUCY After damaging his father s boat, Jeremy has to come up with an idea to raise some money fast He talks his friend Slater into dressing up as a girl and joining the Cupcake Cadets and entering their annual Windjammer Whirl for a chance to win 500 Like with Lucy Ethel, Jeremy s plans nearly never turn out as he expects which makes for quite a few mistakes and laughs and maybe even a few lessons learned along the way.
