Synopsis

My parents could have given me any first name at all, like John, Kevin, Shmevin ... ANYTHING. Instead I’m stuck with the worst name since Mrs Face called her son Bum. Weir Do’s the new kid in school. With an unforgettable name, a crazy family and some seriously weird habits, fitting in won’t be easy... But it will be funny!
