When you're the middle kid, it's always your fault. When someone cries it's your fault, dies, farts, burps, you name it, it's your fault. Always your dang fault. So here's my story of how I, Charlie C. Cooper got rid of the stigma of middle kid, beat the pants off the school meanie, and discovered the super-cool and super-secret hidden tunnels of Mr. Harry Houdini. Seriously, true story. And it all begins right here. Right now.
