Marvin Redpost has an identity crisis after a rather thought-provoking conversation at school with his friend Casey Happleton.
Marvin Redpost is yet again caught in a dilemma. He's been told that he'll turn into a girl if he kisses his elbow, and after accidentally doing just that he wonders if it is really going to happen to him. His voice starts to change, he longs to have pigtails and he even dots his 'i's with a heart in class! What on earth has happened to Marvin, and will he ever be the same again?
