Friendship, heart, and awkward middle-school humor come together in this laugh-out-loud adventure as a group of kids take a class trip that doesn't quite live up to their expectations.

It's all fun and games until you lose cell service.When an epic class trip to "Wild Out," an Outward Bound-like adventure weekend involving rock climbing, kayaking, and zip lining, is announced, Danny Mack and his best friends are thrilled. But when one of the teachers gets sick and Danny's mean older brother volunteers to chaperone, the weekend seems doomed to be a disaster. When the group arrives at the campground, they discover that they'll be sleeping in tents instead of cabins, milking cows for their breakfast oatmeal, and using a toilet without modern plumbing OR TOILET PAPER. Not at all the adventure they thought it would be. Bestselling author Andy McNab and award-winning author Phil Earle join forces for the very first time, and the results are hilarious! Brilliantly illustrated by Robin Boydon, Get Me Out of Here! is full of laughs and heart, but at its core, it's a story of friendship, resilience, and determination.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Demolition Dad by Phil Earle:

"Underneath the high-octane humor and silliness, Earle weaves in powerful themes of father/son relationships, bullying, depression, self-esteem, failure, and even frustrated career women. But mostly of love. This is a gloriously life-affirming novel: funny, sensitive, intelligent and with a heart as big as George's waistline." — The Daily Mail

"Masses of humor, heart, some cracking jokes and moments of real poignancy." — The Bookseller

"Laugh-aloud funny... this book has jokes that will appeal to adults and kids alike." — Kieran Fanning, author of The Black Lotus
