Jack Strong is expected to do everything: sports, music, foreign languages, public service, extra-curricular activities, attend school, do homework and make good grades. He barely has a moment of anything that could be considered free time. His parents just donít understand that he has too much in his schedule so he stages a peaceful protest by refusing to leave the couch. His attempt to win some personal relaxation time surprisingly gains the attention of the local media team, and the situation grows beyond his expectations.  (Booktalk by Louisiana Young Readers' Choice Committee, 2016)
