Hudson Wheeler is going places -- or so his 4th grade teacher had declared. That was before his died in Iraq. Now he is about to start his senior year and is determined to be homeschooled to avoid the memories of the best friends who are no longer able to join him at his high school.

As Hudson navigates the school year he thinks his ultimate goal is to get Alana Love to leave her jock boyfriend Bryce, but along the way he meets some new people who teach him lessons about life. There are humorous moments including his attempts to explain his senior assistance business to potential clients and his encounters with Fritzy the beautiful basketball Amazon. Also included are a mystery surrounding his WWII veteran client, reminders about the challenges our veterans and senior citizens face and aha relationship moments for Hudson. Recommended!
