Sept. 16, 2010 - PRLog -- Young adult author Ofer Aronskind has just released his fourth book, The Celebrities of Summer School (288 pp, $17.95).  Following the theme of his previous coming-of-age novels, his latest story outlines the struggles and successes of a socially-challenged middle-school student.  It’s a story that readers of all ages will relate to.

In this latest book, Aronskind's young narrator is not going off to summer camp as in his previous books but instead is forced to stay home to attend summer school. Thirteen year-old Will Ryerson has come to terms with the fact that he's not much of an athlete, will never be part of the school's "cool" crowd and is an average student at best.  When he discovers that he's failed 8th grade science, he is devasted. He sits in the back of his summer course classroom and keeps to himself.

But when his beloved dog Riley goes missing, Will is surprised to find that a few of his classmates come to his aid. Equipped with cameras, cell phones and the latest gadgets, his new buddies help him find his dog, and at the same time open a whole new world to Will:  the world of the internet.  Using YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and all that the internet has to offer, the new friends soon find themselves at the center of attention as they embark on an adventure that will propel them way beyond the "cool" kids and into the ranks of celebrity status.
