Rip feels like an outsider. He gets no attention at home, and kids tease him in school for being a slow reader. Then he studies notes his language arts teacher gave him, designed to enhance his reading ability at the only place he finds refuge, the public library. But when a local gang invades his sanctuary, Rip's caught smack dab in the middle and his life spins out of control. With the help of a mysterious librarian, Rip discoveres that he has obtained extraordinary powers. He can convert the ideas inside the books within his backpack into weapons. But is it too late? Rare books and computer catalogs are being destroyed and the gang's leader threatens to set the building ablaze. Can Rip stop an angry mo by pulling the right book from his backpack?
