Billy Butterman is a loser, a putz. High school is a total nightmare: all the cool guys pick on him, girls ignore him, and worse yet, everyone calls him "Butterpants" because he had bladder control problems until age twelve. That is, until the day he encounters a mysterious hobo, who urges him into drink from a bottle of awesome. However, he warns Billy not to drink too much, for a person can become too awesome. Will Billy heed his words?
