Pack your sleeping bag, grab your calculator, and celebrate geekdom with this humorous and empowering middle grade novel by the acclaimed author of Standing for Socks. Nerd Camp, here we come!

Ten-year-old Gabe has just been accepted to the Summer Center for Gifted Enrichment. That means he’ll be spending six weeks at sleepaway camp, writing poetry and perfecting logic proofs. S.C.G.E. has been a summer home to some legendary middle-school smarty-pants (and future Jeopardy! contestants), but it has a reputation for being, well, a Nerd Camp. S.C.G.E = Smart Camp for Geeks and Eggheads.
But is Gabe really a geek? He’s never thought about it much—but that was before he met Zack, his hip, LA-cool, soon-to-be stepbrother. Gabe worries that Zack will see him only as a nerd, until a wild summer at camp—complete with a midnight canoe ride to “Dead Man’s Island”—helps Gabe realize that he and Zack have the foundations for a real friendship.
This clever, fun read from Elissa Brent Weissman is full of great minor characters (like a bunkmate who solves math problems in his sleep) and silly subplots (like the geekiest lice outbreak ever). Adjust your head-gear, pack your camp bag, and get ready to geek out!

股市再難預測,也遠不及我的青春期。
只是一不小心,我還是搞砸了……

討厭數學的琳蒂,在摸索股票市場時,竟然成了交易好手!
她發現,再難的股市圖表,都比數學課來得簡單易懂;難怪連股市交易員也說了:「股票市場難以預測的程度哪比得上青少年。」
在股市裡一帆風順的她,只用一週就讓100美元翻倍。小琳蒂忍不住想著,如果再給她七天、再多點資金的話……終於,使用父親的網路帳號進出股市的她,將游標悄悄地,移到爸媽的可用帳戶餘額上……

──讓人輕鬆認識股市術語。
故事緊湊又充滿笑料與驚奇的理財小說!
本書講述一位十二歲的少女琳蒂,為了排解在家養病所培養的新興趣──「炒股票」。
在故事中,琳蒂的爸爸說了:「我們的目的是長期投資,我們要讓錢長大。」只是她才剛找到成功策略、短短七天便讓資金翻倍,如此甜美的誘惑怎麼回得了頭!愈來愈大膽的小琳蒂,是否已經做好「炒短線」的心理準備了?

本書作者特地深入美國證券交易委員會參觀並旁聽,以系統化且淺顯易懂的敘述手法,將金融投資的原理和相關機制,巧妙地融入青少年的日常生活中。並於小說末增設〈股票交易詞彙表〉章節,對於商業投資一竅不通的讀者們,更能藉由本書,走進現代金融市場中瞬息萬變的交易生態。在各章命名上,作者更有效使用了金融術語,並且串連起青少年的校園生活、人際與手足關係、家人互動……

正如《出版人週刊》評為:「此操作無非是聰明之選」,本書以生動有趣的方式,呈現出我們身處在新科技世代長背景中,從小應該瞭解的財務規劃、坦實面對、承擔責任等的品格養成,是本關乎金錢題材且生動幽默的青少年成長小說。
