- "Splinter" Jake McLean is a tall, skinny sixth grader who wears glasses.
- He may not be good at cricket but he proves to Snotty Jackson, the school bully, that he is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to running.
- Jack and his friends take on Snotty's team in the City to Surf race and prove that, although a splinter might be long and thin, it is also hard and tough.
- Part of the Zapper Book series 2.
