12-year-old Tony is crazy for comic books and would give anything to be a hero, but he's not sure he's got what it takes. Given the chance, could he save a life? 

He is about to find out, as he discovers himself back in time on the very day of the Great Boston Molasses Flood -- the 1919 disaster which still gives his grandmother nightmares...
