In The Outstanding Life of an Awkward Theater Kid, Flex is a football player, not an actor, but he can fake it if it means getting to see KK every day after school for about a month. But this play isn't for the weak- first, Flex has to deal with his nemesis, Actor Boy, the guy who greets girls with kisses on either cheek. Secondly, it's a Shakespearian play.
Meanwhile KK is hanging out with Watson, the King of the Youth Group, and no amount of video game playing is going to make Flex feel okay about that. He'd better get his jealousy in check before KK checks out on him for good. With some good encouragement from his mom and dad, a little advice from an unlikely ally, and a whole lot of truth from God's awesome book, Flex might turn his fear of failure into a performance befitting of Shakespeare himself . . . or at the very least, get KK to return his texts. Recommended for ages 8 to 12 years.
