Cheating on the geography midterm is just the beginning. What was done without much thought leads to consequences great and greater-as we discover from six talkative eighth graders who are willing to share every juicy detail. Told in the irresistible multi-voice style of the acclaimed novel The Girls, this fast-paced look at middle school's minefields is full of truth, humor, and heart.
