Frankie, Ryder and Felix are fifth grade students and targets for Callahan’s bullying, tantrums and deceit. Callahan is a 45-year old mechanic at Murphy’s Automotive in Isle of Palms, South Carolina. The owner of the gas station is Kip Murphy. Felix and his sister Francis (Frankie) are Kip’s ten year-old twins. Kip is called to join his unit in the Marine Reserves and is sent overseas. While he’s gone Frankie and Felix are called upon to help run the station in his absence. With Kip out of the picture for a year, this leaves the door wide open for Callahan to impose his will on everyone and everything. Callahan’s bitter the business was left to Kip by his father, instead of going to him after 30 years of service. In Kip’s absence Callahan is determined to lie, steal and cheat to make the station his own. Frankie, Ryder and Felix are science wizards and classmates at H.L. Hunley Elementary School on Sullivan’s Island. They utilize simple science experiments kids can do on their own or with minimal supervision to drive Callahan bananas. When they realize Callahan is stealing from and ultimately making moves to bankrupt the station, they take it upon themselves to up the ante. Instead of merely having fun with their experiments, the trio utilizes science to ultimately thwart Callahan in his tracks.
