The Mighty Hercules
Kim Spurlock, David K. Chan
Four high school misfits in rural West Virginia wonder what dead-end their future holds until... they meet Ophelia, their computer science teacher. Joe, former football star, toils as a cook to make ends meet for his widowed mom. Ernest, tech geek, fixes motors at the garbage dump. Jessie, tiny, smart, and foul-mouthed, skipped the tenth grade only to be incessantly picked on because of her size. Rusty, the graffiti artist, stands on the edge of greatness and juvenile hall. Ophelia sees their promise and leads them to take on the grandest challenge—the National Robotics Competition. But will their faith and ingenuity be enough to take them all the way?
