Harold Schernoff, fourteen - year- old science whiz and social outcast, has a theory to solve every problem, from dating to dealing with bullies, to making money, to playing sports, to buying a car when you're underage. What to learn to ski? Try: MASS x acceleration x slope of hill = EEEEEAAGGHHH! Here's another surefire formula: Golf balls + car = BANG! Science turns slapstick when Harold and his buddy team up to test Schernoff's Discoveries. Only Harold could mastermind such a disastrous first date. Only Harold could go fishing and get caught by the fish. And only Gary Paulsen, one of today's most popular authors for young people, could write such a wonderfully funny novel about friendship. "It's all flat - out goofy and great fun, as well as an inspiring story of shared experiences that, weird as they are, form the basis of a strong and affectionate friendship." - Kirkus Reviews, Pointer Download and start listening now!
