Three Clams and an Oysterby Randy Powell
Synopses & Reviews
A four-man flag-football team in need of an Oyster.
Sixteen-year-old Flint McCallister is the captain of a four-man flag-football team called Three Clams and an Oyster. Flint and the other two Clams, Beaterson and Deshutsis, are going to give this season all theyve got, but, as usual, theyre having Oyster problems. The first Oyster on the team died a couple of years ago. The current one, Cade Savage, is partying too hard and is unreliable. Flint and the Clams are faced with a dilemma: should they stick with their old friend Cade or dump him and go with a new Oyster? And if they dump Cade, who will they get to replace him? Tim Goon, the unknown quantity with the roadkill hairdo? Thor, the nice-guy stoner? Or the girl, Summerfield, who pushes them out of their comfort zone and doesnt shave her legs?
In searching for an Oyster, Flint and his buddies are forced to reexamine their hallowed traditions and old habits - and to take a hard look at who they are and where theyre going.
