A heart-warming and hilarious story about one boy who wants to fit in, the friends he meets along the way, and one NASTY BLOUSE...

Ted has always wanted to be a popular kid, but due to an embarrassing incident that will not be named, he finds it harder than ever to fit in.

But when Ted's parents split up, his whole life changes.

Although leaving his best friend Archie behind sucks, Ted is about to discover that staying with his dad might have its perks. Because with a new start, is the chance to re-invent yourself... that's right, Ted has the opportunity to choose his new identity and it's going to be FRESH.

But can Ted keep up the cool-kid charade, or will his lies catch up with him?
