Emerson is in for the summer of his life at Camp Outlier - if he survives the summer. Camp Outlier is a special camp for RISK (Reoccurring Incidents of the Strange Kind) kids. The last place Emerson wants to be is at a government-mandated summer camp for RISK kids like him, so he's shocked when he actually starts having fun at the camp - and he even makes some new friends. But it's not all canoeing and capture the flag at Camp Outlier. The summer of fun takes a serious turn when Emerson and his friends discover that one of their own is hiding a deadly secret that puts all of their lives in danger.
