Fifteen-year-old Brett Gerson is a real-life S.R.K. (spoiled rich kid)-the guy you love to hate. Yep, Brett's pretty much got life in the bag-until his dad is jailed for insider trading, and the family money swirls down the drain.

Brett wishes things could go back to the way they were-until some dirty swimming pools change everything.
