Synopsis 

How would you stop the most feared bully in school from humiliating your new best friend?

An impulsive 11-year-old boy named Alex Thomas has a simple solution: you hurl your left over pizza at him. Although it does mean he will have to spend the sixth grade finding clever ways to escape a vengeful bully. Alex soon discovers that hiding in the boy’s bathroom, stinking up the cafeteria, pulling the fire alarm ,and running away are not the answers. When he finds himself standing with no clothes on in front of the entire school, Alex quickly realizes things have gotten way out of hand. With help from his brother, and a calculated plan in place, Alex faces his greatest fear...and finally solves Damian Dermite.

Dear Chris Francis,

We are a grade 2 and 3class in Hamilton and have really loved your story. The story kept us on the edge of our seats after each chapter! We waited anxiously to see what was going to happen next! We loved all of the adventure and getting to know the characters so well!! We loved how Alex was so shy to talk to Daisy because of his crush on her.
