Synopsis: Nick Allen wasn’t like the rest of the kids in his school. He liked to point out things that weren’t right. He liked the challenge of making an idea of his a reality. Sometimes they went well and everyone was all for it. One time it changed how everyone looked at something as simple as a word and a pen.
To Nick, timing was everything. He tried to time his questions to get the teacher off topic. He tried to time his questions in class to delay or postpone homework. On a regular day in fifth grade his timing was perfect. It was time for a challenge and a change. Little did he know that his timed interruption would affect every elementary school in the country and create a new fad. Find out what a regular kid in a regular classroom can do if a regular kid puts his mind to it.
