Will Halpin has switched schools and now he has a few new problems. The students at the school for the deaf he just left are mad at him. The teachers at his new school forget to face him so he can read their lips. And the only student who wants to hang out with him is WAY too friendly for Will's taste. So basically, he's perilously close to an invisible outcast.
When one of the most popular guys in school ends up dead during a class trip to a coal trip, Will and his one and only friend (what are you going to do when the guy wants to be friends so badly?) decide to play detective. It turns out you can see a lot when no one sees you.
Smart, funny, and just a little bit bitter, Will "Hamburger" Halpin is a completely fun and original narrator eager to explore a few high school mysteries. Who killed Pat Chambers? What's up with their creepy bus driver? And who takes a field trip to a coal mine?
