His chubbiness has recently earned him the nick name "Chunk Style" and he has resigned himself to a life of isolation. All of this is about to change. After successfully getting himself expelled from every reputable school in the country, Elliot. More of the time, 'Elliot Allagash' enjoys wrapping itself in a mind-body problem: Elliot and Seymour balloon or diminish, build hard bodies and harder souls, shrink and develop according to a.

    With Elliot as his diabolical guide, Seymour gradually learns about all of the incredible things that money can buy, and the one or two things that it can't.
