Project Sweet Life, by Brent Hartinger
Really fun young teen guy book, about 3 guys who, when told by their parents to get their first summer jobs, decide to somehow come up with a grand plan to make the equivalent cash, without the steady work. Through a series of increasingly improbably adventures (think Carl Hiassen or Dave Barry, with a bit of a surprisingly earnest Hardy Boys twist) they learn a lot about Tacoma local history, make some friends, and have the best summer of their lives. This was the last RITBA book I read for the season, and I'm so glad it was a fun one, after all the trauma-drama ones.
