About the Book:
Football suddenly becomes more than just a game for Alexander Graham Ptuiac, the son of an inventor, when he suddenly manifests mysterious superhuman powers during school tryouts. Alex makes the team, but not before some ill-intended adults take notice, putting his life in danger. He struggles to suppress and control his strange new abilities, worried about exposing his secret and being kicked off the football team, until he befriends Dex, a diminutive classmate who can somehow jump as high as ten feet in the air. Alex quickly realizes that he isn’t the only one at school with a secret. As the school year unfolds, Alex learns more about his abilities while he also deals with bullies, holds hands with his first crush, and discovers the shocking truth about himself and his parents.
