This wonderfully wise and witty new collection is full of surprises as ordinary kids in offbeat situations uncover the unexpected -- about themselves and others.

In the title story, Carrie and Sam discover that while the Lord of the Fries, a legendary short -- very short! -- order cook at the Burger Barn, talks tough, he is anything but. In "Ick" Garnet and Brody find a clever way to use ick, the strange disease that killed Brody's goldfish, to protect a friend from the advances of a teacher. In "The Bermuda Triangle, " a story full of missing things -- buried treasure, a father, and even a young boy's voice -- Billy Bones, an odd old man, and Jim Hawkins, a grieving young boy, find the unexpected gift of friendship. These stories, seven in all, shine with unforgettable characters, wry humor, and, best of all, a sense of the possible.
