When they aren�t riding on the tops of elevators in Hollywood, or scrambling beneath the catwalks on the Pacific Ocean Park amusement pier, Kennedy and Wesley are engaged in an endeavor to write and draw superhero comics in the style of their beloved Marvel Comics. Twelve at the beginning of the book, by the age of fifteen Wesley�s interest in comic books and sandlot adventures slowly turns to that most wonderful of mysteries, girls.
