James has a terrible home life and is just an average boy. One day while walking home he decides that what he wants is to be the most average person he can be. Then things get weird because he finds himself in another world with characters like Mayor Culpa a scapegoat and a professional optomist and pessimist. When he is told he can become The King of Average he is really excited but is that really his destiny? I wanted tolike this more than I did. It really reminded me of The PhantomTollbooth. I liked the ending.
