Just like other kids, Zinkoff rides his bike, hopes for snow days, and wants to be like his dad when he grows up. But Zinkoff also raises his hand with all the wrong answers, trips over his own feet, and falls down with laughter over a word like "Jabip." Other kids have their own word to describe him, but Zinkoff is too busy to hear it. He doesn't know he's not like everyone else. And one winter night, Zinkoff's differences show that any name can someday become "hero."

Zinkoff sometimes senses someone being called , but the sound of it is not the sound of his name as he knows it , so he does not turn . And then one day , for no good reason , hearing the name , he does turn .
How silly would that sound ? Him eleven years old . “ Oh , mailman ! ” He turns . ... “ Hi , ” she says . It sounds funny , “ Hi ” coming from such an old person . He has the impression a he could teach her to speak , like a 141.
a girl on Willow Street , and now they knew how it would sound : Guess what ? ... it's dark and the streets are deserted and every kid in town is safe and snug at home except yours , you don't care how it sounds , you call the police .
