Excerpt:
Both of his moms drove with him to drop him off at the middle school. "Mo-o-o-o-o-o-o-om," he groaned, embarrassed, as they hugged and kissed him and told him to be careful before letting him out of the car.

Shouldering his tent and sleeping bag, Earl hurried over to the group of boys clustered around Scout Master Marshak. Tak Wallaby was already there, as well as Steve Carlsberg, the new boy who had moved to Night Vale from the East Coast only a few months before. As usual, Dougie Marshak, the Scout Master's son, wore a ridiculous homemade feathered headdress. Earl ignored him, but greeted a few of the others while he waited for his best friend to arrive.

They were loading their equipment into the Marshaks' van when a voice called, "Hey, Earl!"

Earl turned around, grinning, to see Cecil Palmer and his brother Kevin hurrying toward him. "Hey, Cecil." He rubbed his suddenly-sweaty palms on his pant legs. Soon, he would know.
