Ian's class has just watched a documentary about how Frankie's, a large fast-food chain, puts chemicals and fat in their foods, which helps contribute to the epidemic of overweight consumers. Ian loves the company's fries but realizes that he might be able to get a class project done by taking action against the company. He and his friends send emails to their friends, urging a one-day boycott of Frankie's to raise awareness of the problem of additives. Frankie's lawyers get involved and attempt to shut down Ian's work. Will corporate America persist or will the little guy come out on top? A hi-lo read in the Orca Soundings series, this book will appeal to teens struggling with reading and those interested in activism.
