About the book...


It's tough fitting in when you're born to stick out!


From the moment Stick Boy and his family move to Little Town, there is way more to worry about than being the new kid.


There's a mysterious plot involving Baron Ben's new Mega Mall, pop star Jonny Vidwire, and the highly suspicious HomeBots that are infiltrating every home in town.


Can Stick Boy and his friends uncover the evil plan behind it all... before it's too late?


Action-packed, with a sensitive view on friendships and bullying and with thrilling twists and turns, this is an incredibly exciting and extremely funny new world for middle grade readers and fans of DIARY OF A WIMPY KID, TOM GATES and TIMMY FAILURE.
