Charie Grisner, a starting senior, should be pumped up for this school year but instead he's still getting called "Chunks", even though he lost thirty pounds over the summer and he thought he had a chance with the new girl, Charlotte. Charlie's mother has disappeared again; he has to share a locker with a loser who is a Lord of the Rings freak; their locker is a target for stink bombs; and now his Dad is saying "I love you" to someone who is not his mom. Charlie's friendship with Ahmed, a Rat Pack wanna-be and Charlie's hidden talent, photography, may be his saving graces.
