Join Flex on His Quest to Be Cool
Like most middle schoolers, Flex's mind is on a million different things-school, sports, friends, girls (of course), and yeah, he's thinking about God too. More than any of these thoughts, Flex is obsessed with one thing-being cool.
But how can Flex attain awesomeness when he's so amazingly average at, well...EVERYTHING?!?
Football could be his ticket out of seventh-grade obscurity, but then Coach sticks him with a boring jersey number and reassigns him to the most unglamorous position on the entire team.
His parents aren't helping, either. They won't even let him bring his iPod to school like the other kids do. At least, his parents love him and love the Lord. That's HUGE.
And just when Flex thinks life couldn't any more complicated, he finds himself suddenly drawn to KK, the mysterious drama girl. She's homeschooled and in ninth grade. KK is totally different...and a little exciting.
Will Flex ever be considered cool? In God's eyes, maybe he already is.
