Archie O’Kaye mostly rubs people the wrong way. But when he becomes utterly charming right before everyone’s eyes at his thirteenth birthday party, his family and friends begin to suspect that something is up. What is it about the new Archie that people can’t resist? Little does Archie know, there is an evil overlord who is very interested in his powers of persuasion.
Will Archie inadvertently help her in a quest for world domination, or will he harness this power for good? (Scholastic)
