It was the usual day in school until Marty saw something that put him in terrible danger.
Marty Fisk doesn’t like school. In the schoolroom he sits in the back row of desks and either falls asleep or writes about his heroes on his Smartphone. Who are his heroes? Well, there’s Captain Dan Dazzle of the Planet Patrol and Rik Reddi, the super secret agent from D.A.S.H.I.N.G. and possibly more.
Nothing seems to run smoothly for Marty. There’s his schoolteacher, Mr. Blu. Something is very strange about him, and it’s not the extra long sentences he enjoys giving to Marty. No it’s something else, and it’s up to Marty to discover everything there is to know about the mysterious Mr. Blu.

Mason Dugan was slowly trying to peel a hardboiled egg and still have some left to eat.

At the same time Mr. Blu walked by his desk, sneezed and turned completely blue in the face. It was the brightest blue I have ever seen. I shook my head. I couldn’t have seen what I saw. Maybe my science fiction imagination was beginning to do strange things to me
