Can you imagine being half the size you are now? Ike is an inch worm who is only half an inch long. Ike finds that being small can be both good and bad.

Being in the 9th grade is never easy; being bullied by those bigger and laughed at for being different. Johnny Drickerson loved to draw and found it to be an escape from the harsh bullying that he endured every day at school. All hope was lost of quelling the bullying in the school until Johnny sketched a strange symbol in the back of his that would yield unbelievable results. Johnny soon discovered that his drawings were quickly becoming reality. Johnny Drickerson was no longer just a freshman struggling to find his way, but he was given the option to get away with punishing bullies once and for all. He could use his talent to get his revenge, losing his humanity in the process or find within himself the strength to calm his emotions, forgive and forget, and discover that violence is not the answer.
