AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Will is in trouble and everyone's worried. They reckon it's because of what happened six months ago. He doesn't know what they're on about.

'The latest incident lands him in Deputy Waddlehead's office. His school career is over. That is, until his "concerned" English teacher fixes it so he gets a punishment ten thousand times worse than expulsion - helping out with the school musical.

'This is where the real trouble starts. What do you do with a year seven trombone-playing geek who appoints you as his new best friend, teachers who never get off your back, a really hot girl who thinks you're an idiot, and a rugby-playing jock who doesn't realise how dangerous it is to go to a boys' school and act like you actually enjoy singing and dancing?

'It's a completely different world, and Will is determined not to get sucked in.'  (Publication summary)
