Karl always gets straight A+s and is tired of being labeled a geek. He is offered the chance to join the “in” crowd when super-popular, Blaine asks him if he would like to join their high-tech organization of cheaters. He flatly refuses until the super-strict vice principal sets up harsh new anti-cheating consequences and makes an example of one of Karl’s childhood friend.  Karl then sees joining the cheaters is his chance to be the hero.

Connection:  For another book that deals with the issue of peer pressure, try reading Jake, Reinvented by Gordon Koman –CRW
