Synopsis

Awesome by Pete Johnson

When Ben starts at a new school, the last thing he expects is to be mistaken for a TV star! Can he stop pretending to be someone he's not before things spin out of control? Light-hearted comedy. Suitable for dyslexic, struggling and reluctant reader teens. Ben is just the new boy - until the most beautiful girl in school, Jasmine, mistakes him for the star of TV show 'Awesome!' He doesn't have the heart to tell her the truth! As his lie escalates and more and more people begin to believe it, will Ben do the right thing and come clean?
