Every school has at least one Julian Peabody, but rarely does anyone know these kids by their real names. In Julian’s case, he’s Pee-bedy, Jewels, or more recently, Piebody. Prone to unwanted attention from bullies and embarrassing mishaps, he’s the boy most kids at school try hard to avoid. A move to tiny Laketown changes little - that is, until Julian begins to sense thaEvery school has at least one Julian Peabody, but rarely does anyone know these kids by their real names. In Julian’s case, he’s Pee-bedy, Jewels, or more recently, Piebody. Prone to unwanted attention from bullies and embarrassing mishaps, he’s the boy most kids at school try hard to avoid. A move to tiny Laketown changes little - that is, until Julian begins to sense that the enormous lake that now makes up his backyard is hiding mysteries, extraordinary places and objects that he feels compelled to find but never will on his own. Luckily, there are others in Laketown like Julian: odd but gifted teens accustomed to living life alone but who long for a friend. There’s the husky boy who takes endless abuse but never fights back, the frail, home-schooled kid who rarely leaves his house, and the quirky girl who inexplicably makes everyone else uneasy. Bringing together four self-defensive, naive loners is what Julian must do if he is to uncover what the lake keeps well-hidden. Lacking superior strength or speed and having no access to traditional weaponry, the Loners must overcome conditions and creatures where all are essential. If they fail, more will be sacrificed than they ever imagined....

the laketown loners Reviews
This is a great book with characters that everyone can relate to. It grabs your attention from the start. It has everything! Action, humor, fantasy, and a group of kids that evolve as individuals as well as friends. My only complaint is that it leaves you wanting more and now I have to wait for the next book.
This is the story of kids everyone would like if they took the time to get to know them. But that's the best part: These kids come and go almost undetected because they've worked so hard to stay underneath the radar of the bullies and popular kids to avoid ridicule. This allows them to be more aware of their surroundings, maybe because they're always looking for an exit to every situation, and that's when the fun starts. Their hometown has secrets and mysteries that everyone else overlooks, just like they overlook these kids, but they figure it out. The adventures the Lake pulls them into will keep you turning pages and begging to read just one more chapter before turning off the light. The author does a great job of drawing you in to each unique adventure so that you can see and feel the strange scenes and creatures that hide just beyond the reality the rest of us live in and you'll want to hide from the villain just like Julian, Louis, Morris and Bree. Give this a read, you wont' regret it.
