When young Josh Baskin makes a wish to be big at the Zoltar machine at a carnival—he wakes up to find he’s gone from a 13-year-old to a 30-year-old overnight. Now he’s got to get a job, find an apartment, navigate his first romance, and try to get back to his old life before he loses his family and his childhood forever. Endearing, funny, and endlessly watchable, Big has made itself a home in most of our hearts.
