It is funny and I get a feel from it that it is a comedy.  I would say burnout shares a paper route which is just less wordy.  It kind of makes me say  “and?”  I guess some would say it needs some kind of high stakes.  Does he just pay off the damage and go back to being a burnout?  I feel like there’s much more to it.

Hello! and thank you!  I reworded it a bit as you suggested. As for the growth, definitely. Do I indicate that in the logline?

Agreed with the above.

The wording lets the concept down better to start with the inciting incident and end with the goal.

After damaging his friends house a high-school dropout must share a paper route with his 12 yo overachieving neighbor.

Why is high-school drop out important to the plot it seams more of a device to create an odd couple with the over achiever, is there a better description for the MC a character flaw that could give him a reason to change? If so better to use that instead as a description.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply. Not sure what adjective to use, so I used burnout. In my mind, the main character is in limbo between high school and university/not university. He grows and learns from the experience to get his life together. It’s a rebirth plot
