The Class Action

About the Book

Sixth-grader Sam Warren is sick of stressing over assignments, and that's exactly what he tells his teacher: NO. MORE. HOMEWORK!

Suspended from school, Sam recruits his elderly neighbor and ex-attorney Mr. Kalman to the cause. He's ready to file a class action suit on behalf of all the children in Los Angeles―and eventually the country. Their argument? Homework is unconstitutional.

With his sister Sadie, Mr. Kalman, and his besties, Sam takes his case to Washington DC and the highest court in the land. Will Sam's case pay off and allow him and his friends some time to grow and play, or will he just look like the laziest kid in America?
