When a video of ten-year-old Louie Burger is aired on famous comedian Lou Lafferman’s TV show, Louie is sure that his days of being a class B.U.R.P. (Boy Used to Ridicule and Put-downs) are gone and that his popularity will skyrocket. But his fifteen minutes of fame are over before he even realizes it, and he’s suddenly back to being regular Louie. He tries to come up with ways to bump up his popularity, such as having the best Halloween costume. But Louie soon learns that in the end, friendship is more important than popularity anyway.

This sequel to The Barftastic Life of Louie Burger, with its fun boy humor and copious line art (fifty illustrations!), is sure to satisfy.

I hike my backpack high
 on my shoulders and take one last bite of the caramel apple my dad let me eat for breakfast. It’s a Monday morning in the middle of October and the leaves are starting to change colors, but it’s not cold yet. I step outside without a coat. My sweatshirt is enough. Besides, it’s a Lou Lafferman sweatshirt. I don’t want my coat to cover it. In case no one at school watched
