From the mad-cap best-selling author of Thai-riffic!, Con-nerd and The Other Christy comes this completely inside out, crazy tale of a very reluctant hero who might just find out he’s a natural born born loser – ahem – leader.

I'm Raymond, and my school is a joke. It's full of bullies and troublemakers.

My solution? Be a nobody and fade into the background.

But our new principal has blown my cover because he's chosen me as a prefect!

It was looking pretty bad, until I made a crazy promise to get new air con for the classrooms.
Now I'm REALLY in trouble!

Reviews

Natural Born Loser is a sweet tale about a reluctant hero who proves we aren't restricted by other people's expectations - not even (by) our own. Oliver Phommavanh's warm, inviting voice and episodic storytelling make this book a great pick for independent readers of ages 8-11.
