What if you became mesmerizingly persuasive in the blink of an eye? But what if you were completely clueless about it?

Archie O’Kaye mostly rubs people the wrong way. And he doesn’t really care. But when he becomes utterly charming right before everyone’s eyes at his thirteenth birthday party, his family and friends begin to suspect that something is up.

Meanwhile, there are forces both good and evil who have had their eyes on Archie and three other “special” kids since their exposure at birth to a mysterious element called reidium. When the evil Boss and her number two, Clementine Clutterbucket, get wind of Archie’s charm, they quickly set to scheming about how to use it in their bid for world domination.
