9780062015129: Jeremy Bender vs. the Cupcake Cadets

When eleven-year-old Jeremy Bender does major damage to his father's prized boat, he figures he has one way to avoid being grounded for life: Fix it before Dad finds out. But even if Jeremy and his best friend, Slater, combined their allowances for a year, they still wouldn't have enough money for the cost of repairs.

Inspiration strikes when the boys see an ad for the Windjammer Whirl. Sponsored by the Cupcake Cadets, the model sailboat race pays five hundred dollars to the winner. There's just one problem: You must be a Cadet—and a girl—to compete.

Confident that it will be the easiest money they've ever made, Jeremy convinces Slater they should dress up like girls and infiltrate the troop. But as the boys proceed to botch everything from camping to field hockey, they realize that being a Cadet is no piece of cupcake.

Can Jeremy and Slater earn their badges and win the money? Or will their Cupcake careers be over faster than you can say "vanilla frosting"?

From the Back Cover:

"Come on," Jeremy said. "If people figure out we're not really girls, we have one moment of total embarrassment. It'll be no worse than what Paul Vogler puts us through every day."
     "It's totally worse," Slater said.
     Jeremy went on. "Just the other day you were wishing for some way to change your looks so Paul wouldn't recognize you."
     "It's one thing to change my looks," Slater said. "It's another to change my looks to a girl!"
     "But if we can pull this off..."
     Slater ran a hand through his long floppy-in-the-front skater hair. "You talk about this like it'd be a cakewalk."
     "No," Jeremy said. "It'd be a cupcake walk."
