"Though Henry Khoo is twelve years old, he's still treated like a baby. He's forbidden from going anywhere without his sister/chaperone/bodyguard. And he definitely CAN'T take a journey halfway around the world all by himself! But that's exactly his plan. After his family's annual trip to visit his father in Singapore is canceled, Henry decides he doesn't want to be cooped up at home with his overprotective family and BFF turned NRFF (Not Really Friend Forever). Plus, he's hiding a your-life-is-over-if-you're-caught secret: He's the creator of an anonymous gossip cartoon, and he's on the verge of getting caught. Determined to prove his independence and avoid punishment for his crimes, Henry embarks on the greatest adventure everrr... hoping it won't turn into the greatest disaster ever." -- Jacket flap

From Library Staff

Maybe starting an anonymous gossip blog and flying halfway across the world without telling your parents in order to show everyone you’re not a baby isn’t a great plan, but twelve-year-old Henry Khoo is going to give it a shot.
