Synopsis

This hilarious romp through the highs and lows of middle school features Fowler Webber,an 8th grade inventor who just doesn't fit in.  Born to a "perfect" family that fits the mold in every way, Fowler struggles with the quintessential questions "Who am I?" and "Where do I Belong?".  Luckily, his loyal gang of misfit friends (known as the "Cheese Cutters" due to an unfortunate 4th grade experience they can't seem to live down) are there to help cope with the other kids in school who seem to have it easier. These groups include the ultra-creative "Artistas", the cookie-cutter "Happy Hollys" and the uber-popular "Fabulas". Things seem pretty bleak for Fowler and his friends until the new girl, Swanson, moves to town and provides some new perspective on life in general.
