When his dad announced they were moving to Iowa, Brian looked forward to making some new friends. But on his first day there, he makes an enemy instead -- Frankie Heller, the meanest kid in town. Brian needs to hang out with someone cool to get back on track. . . .

Alex has always been the coolest guy around, and good with money, just like his dad. But now the family's car dealership is struggling, and he needs to make some cash to keep up appearances. Then an opportunity falls in his lap . . . .

Max is a scientific genius, but his parents are always busy with their own work. Building an actual plane should get their attention -- if only he wasn't scared of heights . . . 

The answer to all three boys' dilemmas is Max's secret flyer, and each other. But Frankie and the laws of popularity and physics stand in their way. Can they come together in time to get their plan AND their plane off the ground?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Young boys will revel in the daring exploits and moan with sympathy at the stories of school and social life. The book is about life, decisions, and trust. While the crazy stunts that are pulled are not for the timid, the message is something that parents would want their child to hear.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Plot threads of bullying, a bit of romance, peer pressure, a pigout eating contest and good-old-fashioned ingenuity keep the story moving. Implausibility is sky-high, but the boys’ determination will keep readers going…Part Hardy Boys, part Gary Paulsen, part Skateboard Magazine for Kids.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Ramón de Ocampo gives an energetic and compelling performance in this warm and spirited children’s story…De Ocampo’s enthusiasm, clear enunciation, and skillful pacing dramatize the exhilaration of a common goal as Brian and his friends leave behind the pressures of school by escaping into the air in a homemade airplane.”

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Toni | 1/2/2014

    " Fantastic book for boys who are considered "uncool". Brian, an excellent skateboarder, moves to a new town. On his first day, he makes an enemy. A book about keeping secrets, making friends, and overcoming bullies, this is a true boy book. There is a tiny bit of romance, too. "
