Alexander Graham Ptuiac, the son of an inventor, wants to play for the school’s football team. During tryouts, and under the watchful eye of the team’s coach, he suddenly manifests mysterious superhuman powers. Alexander makes the team, but not before the some ill-intended adults take notice, putting his life in danger.
Alex struggles to suppress and control his strange new abilities, worried about exposing his secret and being kicked off the football team. Then he befriends Dex, a diminutive classmate who can somehow jump as high as ten feet in the air. Seems Alex isn’t the only one at school with a secret.
As the school year unfolds, Alex will find himself the target of bullies, holding hands with his first crush and discovering the shocking truth about himself and his parents.

Excerpt 

You always hope your first day of school is uneventful. You lay low, you blend into the background, and 

you make it through without doing something that’ll get you tormented for an entire year. 

That didn’t happen in my first few hours at Strange Country Day. 

Here’s what did happen: just as I was about to be demolished by an elephant-sized bully named Flab, 

some superhuman power possessed me and I bloodied his nose. 

Another new kid named Dex escaped an ancient initiation ceremony by clambering up a bookcase like a 

mountain goat. That night, I played catch with a football-hurling robot. 

That was Day 1. A week later, I started crushing on the prettiest girl I’d ever seen. 

Wait. I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start from the beginning.
