Twelve-year-old Ross Stevens knows how to make an exit: his mom's job has them move to a new city every few months. What he doesn't know is how to make a life—or friends—in one place. When his grandfather gets sick, and Ross and his mom move in to take care of him, Ross must face school with no end date in sight. The faceless kids in his class suddenly become his peers, and when he's presented with his first science project, he decides to find out the formula to being funny so he can become the class clown—and secure his reputation for greatness among the other students. Will his plan work—or blow up in his face?
