The Swag Is in the Socks

Written by Kelly J. Baptist

Xavier Moon (a.k.a. Moonie) is struggling. He and his sister have moved into their great aunt’s house while their parents are in prison. Moonie is self-couscous about his braces as well as his stutter, which gets worse during times of stress. He would love to be invisible and just blend into the background. Well, Moonie’s great uncle has other plans for him. He sends him crazy socks for him to wear. He challenges him to step out of his comfort zone and become the man he wants to be.
