"Raised by octogenarian grandparents after his narcissistic mother left to join a retreat centre, Will Clark resents his father, whom he blames for her leaving. Convinced his Year Twelve classmates think he's a loser, he retreats into the imaginary world of fantasy novels. However, as his first full-contact taekwondo fight looms ever closer, Woody the bull-necked prop starts bullying him, and his grandfather is taken to hospital with suspected cancer. And when his mother returns, his schoolmates begin treating him as if he's their friend, including Conway, the girl of his dreams. Finally he musters the courage to join his peers, confront Woody, talk to Conway, and accept his parents for who they are"--Publisher information. Suggested level: secondary.
