A strange name can saddle a child for life with the inability to succeed. This may be a reason behind Odd’s feeling that he is really not very important as a short-order cook. He may work at the Pico Mundo Grille all his life and since he is only 20, that’s another 50 or 60 years.

Will he save money and buy the grille or will h find something else to do? After all, he has special powers – like may people in the new Spring TV Lineup of 2014. For some reason, new movies and  TV series this spring show trending toward the supernatural. They star people with clairvoyance, psychokinesis, healing, and other powers on television and a dozen religious movies are set to appear in close succession.

And we still have the unique show The Blacklist, which must be supernatural, because so many people say they love it, even if they cannot figure it out.

As for names – Many of my former adult education students with unusual names have felt the inadequacies that Odd feels in Book One and his movie; but,  so have some people with popular names and high IQs.He can represent all of us at some crossroads in life.

Odd may be more usual than we suspected.
