It came from the sky, at the very moment Rodney Rathbone thought he was done for! That's how a pop fly changes Rodney's life. He's standing on the playground at his new school, about to be pounded into oblivion by Josh, the nastiest bully ever, when a baseball flies out of nowhere and slams into Josh's head, knocking him out cold! All the kids (including the bully himself) think Rodney delivered the blow that took the bully down. Only Rodney knows the truth: that he's a complete coward when it comes to bullies…or anything scary, for that matter. Now he'll have to live with the consequences of a weird accident, and the tough-guy reputation he did nothing to deserve! The rest of the kids think he's a hero. Can he even pretend to be tough?
