Cal wants to help new boy Jacob, but Jacob doesn’t want anyone’s help. Most of all, he doesn’t want anyone to know that his whole family needs help – and they’re getting it from the local food bank. But Cal and his mum are volunteers there, and so Jacob’s secret is out. Cal wouldn’t dream of betraying him, but there are others at school who can’t pass up the chance to pick on the kid who’s different.
