Theme

Felton Reinstein spent his first nine years of school practically being invisible. He wanted so badly to be a comedian, but he wasn't funny. It seemed that nothing was going his way. He had very few friends and the popular kids would call him Squirrel Nut. Then in the blink of an eye everyone, including coaches, started to notice him. Felton grew 12 inches and gained 50 pounds between his freshman and sophomore year of high school. Felton went from being a nobody, to becoming a super athlete like Waler Payton. He also started hanging out with the popular crowd. Felton finally had confidence to do things with his life, like go after a girl. With all of these changes going on in his life, he began to wonder more about his father. Felton discovers a secret about his fathers past, and then Feltons questions start getting answered.
