When the going gets tough-fake it!
Look, I didn't ask to move to Nowheresville, Pennsylvania. I stick out here like a squid on Mount Everest. The way I figure it, blending in won't make people like me. Or solve my huge family problems. Or get me noticed by Woody, the fearless, wildhaired, guitar-rocking girl of my dreams-without getting my butt kicked by her huge, evil friend. Blending in is impossible. So maybe it's time for me to stand out.
Meet San Lee, a (sort of ) innocent teenager, who moves against his will to a new town.Things get interesting when he (sort of ) invents a new past for himself, which makes him (sort of ) popular. In fact, his whole school starts to (sort of ) worship him, just because he (sort of ) accidentally gave the impression that he's a reincarnated mystic. When things start to unravel, San needs to find some real wisdom in a hurry. Can he patch things up with his family, save himself from bodily harm, stop being an outcast, and maybe even get the girl? Sort of . . .
