Wyatt and Augie are having a great summer and it's just going to get greater once they have finished building their fort in the woods behind the local junkyard. With the fort complete the two boys can hang out in the woods catching their own food and cooking it over a fire, just being boys. But their great time is marred by two local bullies who come and mess up the fort. That's bad enough, but then Wyatt and Augie find out that the bullies have also been messing with a mentally challenged boy in the neighborhood. The two friends decide it's time to teach the bullies a lesson.
I like the two main characters in the book and was somewhat amused by their story but wasn't engrossed in it. A literary "Home Alone". A good choice for boys who want to read something quick and all about things boys find interesting.
