Leon John Crothers is 4779 days old (thirteen years and one month, if you're mathematically challenged), he has been 'moved on' from six different schools and most people think he has an attitude problem. Leon doesn't care for the label in the same way that he doesn't care for Tim Burton, supermarket trolleys, train fanatics or Bounty bars.
This time, however, things may turn out differently as help comes from where he least expects it - Dr Snot, a physician at pains to help Leon navigate 'normal' and classmates, Tanya and Lawrence who both face their own challenges. When school bully Glen Jenkins humiliates Leon in the school canteen and almost destroys Lawrence, Leon very reluctantly agrees to the formation of a club, The Asparagus Bunch.
How Leon manages to navigate school woes and family drama - and astonishingly ends up with not one but two friends - is nothing short of a miracle, or maybe just simply down to being different.
