The Fizzy Whiz Kid by Maiya Williams
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


From an author who knows Hollywood from the inside, here is a funny look at instant fame. When Mitchell Mathis moves to Hollywood with his academic parents he realizes that he's the only ordinary kid in a school of the powerful and famous. There's Julia Jodie Schwartz, named after her agent father's two highest earning clients, except now that both clients have left the agency they just call her 'J.J.' Or Skywalker Wong, whose parents are special effects gurus. Mitch feels like an outsider until he's noticed by the parent of a classmate and cast in a soda commercial that launches a popular catchphrase. Suddenly he's on TV, signing autographs, and riding in limos. But when the soda is blamed for child obesity, fame doesn't seem like so much fun anymore. He'll need all his 'acting' skills to figure out how to go back to being a normal kid again.
