A boy who wants to be a secret agent teams up with a girl who can talk to animals in a bid to stop a teacher brainwashing school children.
Alex Sparrow is a super-agent in training. He is also a human lie-detector. Working with Jess, who can communicate with animals, they must find out why their friends, and enemies, are all changing into polite and well behaved pupils. And exactly who is behind it all.
In a world where kids' flaws and peculiarities are being erased out of existence, Alex and Jess must rely on what makes them different to save the day.
NOTE: Children are brainwashed by one teacher in a pupil automated lobotomy scheme which parents unwittingly agree to as it appears to improve pupil behaviour and achievements!
