Scott's High School Survival Tips include:
...Never wear a dorky hat. Especially if there are big kids around.
Don't carry your books under your arm in a crowded hall.
Try to avoid the bus, even if it means catching a ride from a stranger with a chain saw.... (Lubar, 31)
Despite his best efforts, Scott manages to survive the pain that high school inevitably supplies. He learns that a girl named Lee, with her fishnets and piercings, is much different than she appears. A tough guy named Wesley does more than pilfer snacks and cigarettes, and Julia (with whom he shared peanut butter crackers in kindergarten) may not be the dream that he imagined. Scott's story is honest and filled with humor, despite the struggles along the way.
