Marty Apostrophes and Bill Brown are from opposite sides of the tracks, but their friendship allows them to overcome bullies and scrape through classes (with Bill doing the lion's share of the scraping). Bill's obsession with the classic cars owned by Marty's family leads to a joy ride in a 1937 Cord 812 Sportsman, and the accidental foiling of a robbery . which is caught on video by their friend, aspiring teen reporter Elizabeth Murphy.


The video goes viral, and Marty and Bill - or at least, their accidental alter egos, Nothing Man and the Purple Zero-become instant celebrities. Is this a fleeting moment of celebrity? Or are the trio living up to a destiny foretold by a dying principal who reminded them that "Some have greatness thrust upon them"?


In Nothing Man and the Purple Zero, award-winning author Richard Scarsbrook brings us more hilarious adventures from Faireville High School.
