Review by: JENNIFER THOMAS on Nov. 1, 2012 :
This story grabbed me because most people can relate. Everyone who is unhappy with themselves are looking for the next great thing to make us look better, feel better or just to give us the most amazing body ever. Well, unfortunately for our main character, Ned, he not only gets pulled into the hype of the next best thing, it really works!!!!

Ned is so tired of spending his life living and cowering away from all of he bigger meaner people in this great wide world. When his hero, and athlete, comes out with the super cereal that promises to give Ned the muscular body of his dreams how can he not try it? No only is the cereal great tasting but it has a prize in the box. That little prize gives Ned the feeling of being a kid again. While happily wearing his his prize and full on cereal he sits and waits for it too work. But Ned has never had the best of luck. The news proclaims that the very cereal he just devoured was killing people and they don't know why?? All of Ned's dreams of being the big guy got a change and getting the girl are tosses in the trash bin as he is frantic and not yet ready to die.

What happens in the pages that come after will blow your mind!! You will have to read this story to find out what happens to Ned. Does he live? Does he find happiness? Most of all after you read this will you be able to eat cereal without this story popping in to your mind?
