"Winging It with Peanut Butter and a Pocket Cross"
Twelve-year-old CA surfer dude H.P.'s relo to IL winter is the last straw. Too many changes jerking him around. Absent Dad. Grandfather's move to heaven. Mom taking a poverty-job at the Coffee Pot Cafe. Nothing to hold on to.
Then Grandfather's words sink in: "Stand for something or you stand for nothing."
Empowered, H.P. steps out in his faithful Converse armed with a Pocket Cross and a Post-It Note found in an old Bible for a Mission Possible.Somehow, he has to man-up and find out who he is and what he stands for.
Geek peep "Owl" and H.P. start KOLTs, Knights of the Lunch Table, to counter classmate put-downs about bibliophiles, girlie names, moppy hair, and lackluster basketball prowess. They vow knightly virtues of courage, bravery, throw in some passive resistance, and peanut butter recipes to even things out.
Things could change forever when you swap out "H.P., Horrible Person" for "H.P., Honorable Person."
