by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2013-10-04) Excellent Permalink

Change is coming into the lives of 3 boys one hot summer in Texas. Zachary, an over weight boy comes to town as a side show. Toby and Cal, best friends, join the throng of sightseers.  What starts out as curiosity ends up in friendship.
