Kelly has an unusual eating disorder called pica, feasting on inedible items like paper, Styrofoam, and erasers. Doctors can't help him. Classmates pick on him daily. His single mom is at her wits' end. When his condition worsens, Kelly's mom hires a faith healer to lay hands on a bedridden Kelly. The healing ritual ends in disaster but serves its purpose, and even more surprising, Kelly gains supernatural powers; any pain inflicted on him is instead felt by his aggressor. The next time a classmate attacks him, for every punch landed on Kelly, the bully bleeds and Kelly heals.
