Five junior-high school boys are mysteriously called to the Vice Principals’ office. Not so unusual, you think? Though these 5 students-- Denton, Wendell, Eddie, Elijah and Bijay (collectively “DWEEB” and the school’s misfits) initially have nothing in common, they pool their diverse talents to overcome a plot within the walls of Ho-Ho-Kus Junior High involving hamburgers, high-stakes testing and mind control! Comic adventures abound as they battle bullies and their own building administration to save their school. Sly references to current controversies about school testing add a satirical edge to this contemporary story.
