It's time to end this family curse--when one Martin is born; the previous Martin dies.

BPLNextBestKids Feb 15, 2012

Martin’s mother is convinced that germs are everywhere and keeps a supply of precautions which she applies to everything and everyone. She is a very protective mother and Martin at 13 has never experienced most things a normal boy would have done. He has never even had a sleep-over! When Martin discovers the curse on his name and becomes convinced he is about to die, he decides he has to make the best possible use of his remaining time and do things he has never done before – and maybe find a way to break the curse.
