Seventh grader Carson Fender has lived in North Dakota his entire life. Itâ€™s pretty much empty, so he has to liven things up a little â€“ for example, by executing epic pranks. Like, um, releasing hundreds of goats on school property. And then, while everyoneâ€™s trying to round up the goats, super-gluing everything in the building. Every stapler to every desk. Gluing all the doors shut. Et cetera.
In all the chaos, Carson barely notices the guy in a black suit and dark glasses â€“ at least until the guy walks right up to him and hands him a mysterious package. And tells him that he has to guard the package with his life.
And thatâ€™s not a prank.
Now Carsonâ€™s gone from prankster to accidental secret agent â€“ but letâ€™s face it, the kind of guy whoâ€™d set a bunch of goats loose maybe isnâ€™t great at decision-making, so heâ€™ll have to enlist the help of his friends if he wants to survive â€“ and, you know, maybe save the world.
