A boy makes an enemy list with one name: Jeremy Ross. It’s been the perfect summer for the boy—until Jeremy moves into the neighborhood and makes fun of him. Luckily, the boy’s Dad knows about enemies and makes an enemy pie for his son to give to Jeremy. To make the pie work, the boy has to spend a day playing with Jeremy. While they play, the boy even lets Jeremy into his tree house. By the end of the day, the boy is no longer sure he wants to give the enemy pie to Jeremy.
