Great audio reader! Love Nick Podell!

Summary by Scholastic:

Jeff has passed the five-year mark. He's free. Cancer-free. When he was four years old, Jeff was diagnosed with leukemia. His hair fell out, he threw up a lot, and he went through different kinds of treatment in order to be cured. Now that Jeff is cancer-free, he can finally live a normal life and hopefully not be considered just "The Boy with Cancer."

8th grade gets off to a great start. He meets Lindsey, a beautiful new transfer student from California. And Jeff is shocked to find out that she actually likes him. Not just as a friend, but as something more! And he has a bunch of classes with his best friend Tad, who's also a cancer survivor. Of course, not everything is perfect.

Jeff spaces out at school because of his cancer treatment and walks with a limp. His big brother Steven, who was always there for him, has dropped out of college and moved to Africa. And Jeff is still terrible at math.

Then the bad news arrives. . . Every 8th grader is being forced to take a state-wide standardized test. If Jeff doesn't pass that test, he won't move onto high school with his girlfriend and best friend.
But Tad and Lindsey have a plan to make sure that Jeff doesn't fail the test. This plan is so big, so secretive and so crazy that there is no way it will work. . . will it?
