Spanky loves snakes, sketching, camping, and, well, maybe girls. While his dad is fighting grown bullies in Afghanistan, Mack Malone, has Spanky in his crosshairs at school. Worse yet, whenever Spanky needs to defend himself, help a friend, or. . . OMG. . . save his teacher's life, he freezes! The overnight Outdoor Ed camping trip is Spanky's chance to impress a special girl, make his dad proud to have him for a son, and. . . get him suspended. Ultimately, Spanky learns to face his fears and what it really means to be a hero.
