Anyone caught reading this notebook without my permission will be tossed in the bayou with a rabid snapping turtle! Seriously, I mean it!
My name is Russell Weinwright and if you think you've got problems in middle school, try being a half-kid, half-algae swamp creature who's terrible at sports! It's not easy. I eat sunlight for lunch, I've got duckweed for hair, and I think a frog might be living in my tree trunk arm. I'm literally pond scum! Some kids call me Swamp Kid, but my best friends Charlotte and Preston keep me sane.
I wish I could let you read this notebook to get the real scoop on being an eighth grade outsider (please ignore the doodles and ketchup stains!), but things have gotten a little crazy lately. Men in black are spying on me, my science teacher might be an evil mastermind, and a hulking beast in the bayou may or may not be my super swamp mentor. Believe me, you don't wanna know! Turn back now!
