Frederick Douglass Zezzmer already has his entire life figured out...and he's only in middle school!
Doug’s going to be The World's Greatest Inventor if he can just convince his Pops—a legendary Denver Broncos wide receiver—that science is just as important as sports.
So when Principal Yee announces an epic competition, Doug knows he has to win. But that won't be easy! The competition doesn't just include "unconventional" STEAM challenges. It also has (gulp) sports.
Even worse, it's a team competition. And instead of being in a superstar group, Doug gets paired with four middle school misfits no one else wants.
Doug only has one week to turn his team of outcasts into winners ... and maybe even friends. Will his legendary invention-making skills be enough?
Control Freaks is a STEM fiction & satire novel that is perfect for ages 8-12 and for adults. Topics include middle school friendships, blended families, STEAM and sports.
