Publishers Description: Cedar Hole is a foggy little town where only the grass seems able to blossom, and the local schoolchildren are a rather hopeless and lethargic bunch. But the teachers and students this term are startled to meet the enigmatic, confident and relentlessly cheerful Robert J. Cutler. He seems destined for great things - more than this town can offer, certainly. But Robert is dedicated to his beloved Cedar Hole, and he quickly becomes the greatest student the school has ever seen. Meanwhile, in the same class as Robert is Francis 'Spud' Pinkham. Spud has nine terrifying elder sisters, all tomboys, either indifferent or hostile towards him. His home life is a daily battle of torment so he easily slips into the role of the school bully. It seems that this trend will continue indefinitely. Robert grows to be a model citizen, and the town is his hobby, his interest and his life. Spud marries his first girlfriend and has a meagre existence where nothing everything and everyone seems to be against him. But destiny has other plans for these two men. And the colourful residents of Cedar Hole will be forced to acknowledge that a good man can come in many guises. about small-town life, growing up, and, above all, what it takes to be great.
