Nerd Camp 2.0 by Elissa Brent Weissman

Nerd Camp 2.0 Zack and Gabe are stepbrothers who couldn’t be more different. Zack likes skateboarding, surfing, playing video games and collecting baseball cards, while Gabe is more into being on the math team, collecting scientific element cards and conducting scientific research. They’ve learned to respect each other’s differences, and Gabe even helped Zack getting into Camp Seneca, a summer camp that’s near the one he attends. But when a fire damages Camp Seneca, Gabe's Summer Center for Gifted Enrichment camp offers to let Camp Seneca share their facilities.  Now it becomes the classic tale of Nerds vs. Cool Kids. Who will win the battle?

Nerd Camp 2.0 by Elissa Brent Weissman, the sequel to Nerd Camp.  It goes back and forth between Gabe’s and Zack’s perspectives, showing the concerns of each side for what seems like harmless fun to others, can be hurtful from a different perspective. I liked the message it represented about accepting each other's differences.
