Summary
  • 'When their teacher sets a class experiment, the kid's initial excitement turns sour when they discover it is a social experiment that will test their character. Their assignment is to look after an egg as though it were a baby for a whole week and they have to name, protect it and take it with them wherever they go (or arrange an egg-sitter if need be). If they lose or damage it in any way they will fail so the narrator thinks it's going to be a l-o-n-g week looking after his own egg-child, Nog. Soon, there are several casualties and the narrator and his best friend, Jackal, sense a money-making opportunity. They open an egg-minding day care service which has the customers queuing up. Along the way, the narrator also surprisingly develops feelings for Nog - so is devastated when, at the end of the week, the school bully smashes his egg all over his head. He is further humiliated when footage of the incident turns up on You Tube. But soon, disaster turns into triumph when a shampoo company sees the video and pays him to appear in a commercial. He will now be known as an egghead forever - but for the right reasons! A new story in the Lightning Strikes series for children ages 9-14.'--Provided by publisher
