''Thank Trevor, he didn't see me.'

'Meet Jesse James Jones. He's an eleven-year-old boy tackling big problems in life, especially being the new kid in school. Luckily, Jesse can confide in his friend Trevor. Problem is, Trevor is a poster of Jesus on his bedroom wall.

'Meet Hunter Riley. Hunter is the school bully and loves calling Jesse anything but his own name. With Hunter's catch phrase 'Ha!' and his mean words echoing through the grounds of their peaceful school, something or someone has to give.

'But will it be Jesse? Or is Hunter more than he seems?

'An inspiring and funny story about the little things that help to make everyone's world a better place.' (Publisher's blurb)
