Elle Campbell Wins Their Weekend

by Ben Kahn

Ferris Bueller's Day Off meets Gamer Girl for middle grade
in this hilarious, heartfelt story about a non-binary kid trying
to figure out who they are at home, at school, and in the fandom
that changed their life.

All Elle Campbell wants to do is meet their hero, non-binary icon
Nuri Grena. Well, okay, they'd like a bit more than that - they'd
like to learn how to do cat eye makeup, for queen bee Casey
to stop critiquing their outfits, and for the finale of Elle's favourite
show to have been less terrible. But meeting Nuri means the
most of all.

So when Elle learns that Nuri is coming to town for book signing
on Saturday, Elle is thrilled. It's the perfect chance to meet
their hero! Elle's never been happier since they came out as non-binary,
but they have a lot of questions - questions only Nuri can

But Elle's dreams are dashed when an altercation with a surly
substitute teacher lands Elle in Saturday detention. Elle is ready
to give up until their two best friends come up with a plan to
bust them out of school. A plan so outrageous, it just might work.

Yet that's just step one. The kids also have to make their way
across town with no money, no phones... and no driver's licenses.
But they refuse to give up -- even if that means "borrowing" scooters
from elementary school loan sharks, or winning a laser tag
tournament with a cash prize.

Comic-author Ben Kahn makes their middle grade debut with this
zany, heartfelt love letter to friendship, John Hughes movies, and
the power of accepting who you are . . . even when there's no
set map for where you're going.
