Some Friends Are Just Worth Making
For Howard Boward, science genius, making friends in middle school is hard. The other kids have more fun creatively expanding Howard s name than actually hanging out, as in How-weird or How-Lame So, why not actually make a friend? A little wonder putty, some DNA, a few accidentally spilled chemicals and boom instant friend. Monster friend, that is. Franklin ends up being cool in middle school, and he helps Howard climb the uber-popular ladder, becoming How-Cool. But the new fame and friendship isn t exactly everything Howard hoped. Turns out real friendship might not be so simple, even when you create your own friends from scratch."
