If Austin picked a color to describe his life, it would be tumbleweed brown. Austin doesn't like standing out. He moves a lot, so he’s always the new kid, and there's no hiding his size. Plus, Austin has a secret. A coming-of-age story about a boy who is used to flying under the radar, and the classroom of kids determined to help him stand out.
