When an unassuming, rather clueless teenager is zapped by lightning while working on his computer, he absorbs all the information off the internet and his (very) ordinary brain starts to exhibit extraordinary potential. As Howie struggles to control his new-found power he is faced with all sorts of hilarious predicaments, from contending with mega-mean teachers to being ridiculed by the school braniac, a petite know-it-all determined to humiliate him. Can Howie overcome the enormous obstacles before him to defeat his annoying arch-nemesis and solve the peculiar mystery of the stolen Great Quiz Trophy?

John Michael is an English teacher by day, where he does his best to instil a love of literature into the heart of every student who wanders into his classroom – willingly or unwittingly! By night, he transforms into a writer – creating new worlds for young readers, full of unpredictable scenarios, zany humour and madcap imaginings.
