Young Peter Wagner is growing up in the ’80s in Wyoming. He is terrified of entering the sixth grade but has a summer to prepare. As the son of a Lutheran pastor, Peter must make choices that most other kids don’t contemplate. Not only is he the preacher’s kid, he is also adopted, short, dark-skinned, and ambitious. Vacation Bible School, summer baseball, church camp, and urban legends, are the only things standing between Peter and junior high. Peter does his best to find the balance between being the son of a pastor and being a teenager, and the Bible is where he finds his answers.
