Adam Higgs is a loser, and he's not okay with it.
But starting as a junior in a new high school seems like exactly the right time to change things. He brainstorms with his best friend, Brian: How can he take over Nixon Collegiate? Or, he amends, not take it over, but win at it?
Step One: Rent Scarface on DVD. (For inspiration.)
Step Two: Identify the Nixon Collegiate junior class gods and goddesses.Step Three: Become the guy who has what they want and can get what they need.
Adam searches for the A-listers' weak spot and strikes gold when he gets main goddess Sara Bryant to pay him for doing her physics homework. Soon Adam builds up a very loyal, very demanding all-star clientele for his services. One part nerd, two parts badass, the Pizza Man (he delivers!) ditches his legit job and turns to full-time cheating.
Homework becomes booze becomes fake IDs, and Adam seems to have the hookup for everything. His popularity soars as he unlocks high school achievements left and right. But for Adam, the dozens of girls and limitless influence are not enough. Something else is haunting him, driving him to keep climbing.
Will his attempt to win force him to go too far and lose everything he didn't know he already had?show more
