Hank Kirby's out of luck.
He doesn't want to screw up.
It just happens.
One example: his attempt to ask out the girl he likes literally burns into flames when he spelled "prom" on flares on Amanda Carlisle's lawn and almost burned her house down, never asking her the big question.
Hank just wants to pretend the incident never happened.
And he could have gotten away with it, except there's a witness.
Peyton Breedlove, a loner and budding pyromaniac, saw it all, and blackmails Hank into an unusual friendship.
Of course, Hank may be heading for his biggest disaster yet, but only when life falls apart can you begin to rebuild it.
