Donovan Curtis, widely acknowledged to be the biggest troublemaker in his school, has just pulled the wildest stunt ever, and it's really run amok. This time things have gotten out of hand, and have caused colossal damage to the school doors and the new gym. He knows he's going to be in an amazing amount of trouble, but the dreaded axe never falls. Instead, his parents receive a letter informing them that Donovan has been selected for entrance into the Academy of Scholastic Distinction, much to the surprise of one and all. But academics have never been his strong suit...how will he survive in such a place?
