How to Survive a Totally Boring Summer by Alice DeLaCroix. A new school year is almost ready to start – you’ve had all summer – did you do what you planned at the beginning?

But their best idea, forming a chess club called the Checkmate Club, turns into a special community project with seniors. If you enjoy playing chess or have always wanted to learn how to play, this is the book for you.
