David, a boy in his class, does react. He's branded a weirdo, becomes an outcast, and is given a terrible nickname. Alex is determined not to suffer the same fate.
But one day, Alex gets a note in his bag that forces him out of his safe little world.
Who sent the note? And is what it promises true--will a boy really fly?
The Icarus Show is an unforgettable story about friendship, loneliness, and a strange kind of genius.
