When Mattie Kleinfeld tells his friends that his summer camp girlfriend, Nicole, is in New York City for the weekend, they dare him to ditch school, hop a train and go into the big city to find her.
Unable to say no to a dare, Mattie takes up the challenge and soon the four of them find themselves in the heart of Manhattan and in a whole lot of trouble. With money in short supply, they scam their way from the depths of the subways to the top of the Empire State Building and every tourist stop in between.
The action never stops as the four friends fight off would-be muggers, escape museum guards and outwit a deranged cabdriver. With each crazy exploit, the reader rides a roller coaster of adventure from one end of the city to the other.
"Escape From Sunday School" is a must read for any kid who has ever sat in class daydreaming of cutting school and playing hooky.Buy The Book
