"Maybe, for once in my life, I just wanted to be a person t a jumble of food and fart jokes. Was that too much to ask?" Farley wants this summer to be different. He's turning 11, and it will be the year he reinvents himself, loses some baby weight, and gets his crush, Anna, to notice him. With the best intentions, Farley answers a self-improvement ad, which just happens to summon a pixelated mini-genie named Tomy, who isn't going away until Farley accomplishes his self-improvement goals. Over the course of the next few weeks, Farley begins running with his dad, starts an amateur band with his best friends, attempts to read War and Peace, and works up the courage to talk to Anna. Tomy's message, in the end, seems to be that Farley is perfect just the way he is, though that message is muddled by the fact that he encourages Farley to make some big lifestyle changes. This is a light read with wide appeal, if readers can get past some noticeable didacticism.

An eleven-year-old boy on a quest to impress his suddenly cute, longtime friend accidentally manifests a tiny internet guru into existence in this hilarious MAX novel!

All class clown Farley Andrew Turner (yes, that spells FAT) wanted the summer before seventh grade was to give his image a little boost…and maybe, just maybe, impress his oldest pal, whom he has a secret crush on.

But when Farley accidentally manifests a tiny internet guru into existence (think genie, but far more annoying and without any ability whatsoever to grant wishes), his entire plan goes sideways.

Now, in order to rid himself of the four-inch tall pest spouting ridiculous self-help advice and doing yoga on his mouse pad, Farley must complete all “Seven Steps to a Whole New You!”—no matter how embarrassing they may be. Which is how Farley finds himself outfitted in too-small spandex and suffering through daily jogs with his super-athletic dad, attempting to read War and Peace, and agreeing to play toy guitar in his best friend Burt’s newly formed off-pitch boy band. Unfortunately, it only goes downhill from there…

But hey, no one ever claimed the path to enlightenment would be easy, did they?
