Baxter Green cannot forget. Anything. He remembers what he ate for breakfast last Tuesday, what he wore on the first day of kindergarten, even an account number he’s only seen for a second. Baxter’s “gift” may be more trouble than it’s worth. Teachers hate when he corrects them, his classmates think he’s a freak, it seems like the only person who’s impressed with Baxter’s talent wants to use him to commit credit card fraud. Baxter is hoping all that will change when his family moves to Minnesota. No more Memory Boy, just regular Baxter. While Baxter’s memory may be extraordinary, his desire to fit in, get the girl, and lead a normal life is something everyone can identify with.
