Review

"Robert T. Jeschonek is clearly a writer with a lot of big ideas and talent." -Thom Dunn, The Daily Genoshan

Product Description

A twisted modern fable from award-winner Robert T. Jeschonek, author of the upcoming young readers' novel My Favorite Band Does Not Exist.

Meet a kid so bad, he gets a lump of coal every year... and likes it! Neighborhood bully Buzz Scanlan takes pride in his annual lump, which he sees as a black badge of badness. But this year, when the coal doesn't come, the ten-year-old holy terror becomes a bad boy on a mission. He roams from one victim of his wicked mischief to the next, digging for dirt on the one nice thing he must have done to deserve no coal. When everyone agrees he's been nothing but naughty, he nearly gives up the hunt... until he stumbles onto the shocking truth behind his lumps of coal, an incredible secret that just might change his life forever. Will Buzz get his lump after all, sealing his fate as the ultimate bully? Or will solving the mystery lead to a fate worse than death for the naughtiest boy, an unexpected good deed that breaks his not-nice record?

Don't miss this fun and funny tale with a twist from award-winning author Robert T. Jeschonek. Expect the unexpected in this fresh new holiday classic for all ages.
