Peter has a big problem on his hand, in fact he has several big problems on his hand and they all revolve around algebra. As a seventh grader Peter has struggled with math all year long and is on the verge of not only failing the class, but being forced to go to summer school and miss out on a vacation of a lifetime with his best friend Veronica.
But, there is an out. If he can somehow make a B on the final exam he will get a passing grade and be able to escape the torments of a summer wasted. But getting a B is a tall order for a kid whose highest grade was a 69. But he is willing to do anything in order to pass, Anything.
Veronica comes up with a scheme that she is sure will get her friend the grade he desires, but only if he is willing to go through with it.
Answers don’t come quickly for Peter as he weighs the costs and consequences of an idea that may be just crazy enough to work, but is he brave enough to go through with it. He said he was willing to do anything, but did he really mean it? Does he go through the plan? Does he pass the test? Does he even find out something about himself in the process.
