In this story about a good kid with a great imagination struggling in a less-than-ideal world, James Patterson brings his bestselling “Middle School”-style humor and sensibility to an urban setting.
Kenny Wright is a kid with a secret identity. In his mind, he's Stainlezz Steel, super-powered defender of the weak. In reality, he's a chess club devotee known as a “grandma's boy,” a label that makes him an easy target for bullies. Kenny wants to bring a little more Steel to the real world, but can he recognize his own true strength before peer pressure forces him to make the worst choice of his life?
James Patterson's newest novel is a genuinely funny yet poignant look at middle school in a challenging urban setting, where a kid's life can depend on the everyday decisions he makes.
