For young Sheldon Cooper, being a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn't always helpful in East Texas. And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat nave Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal withhim. His father struggles as a high school football coach and father to a boy he doesnt understand. Sheldon's mother fiercely protects her son who just doesn't fit in. Sheldons older brother does the best he can in high school, but his younger brother is already in college. Sheldons twin sister remains the one person who can reliably tell Sheldon the truth. And his beloved Meemaw, his Texas grandmother who supports him and his gifts. For over a decade, Big Bang Theory audiences came to know the iconic, eccentric and extraordinary Sheldon Cooper. Now they join him as he embarks on his innocent, awkward journey toward the man he will become.
