Judge is desperate. His mother has threatened to send him to a different school next year—away from his twin brother and “posse” of friends. To prove he can succeed at his current school, Judge needs to bring up his grades. After weeks of hard work—all while dealing with his sometimes difficult brother, his dyslexia, and the news that his divorced father has decided to remarry—Judge’s hopes depend on winning a science competition. Soon it all comes down to the egg-drop . . .
