From the box:
Jerry Mitchell just bumped into Buddy Revell. Now Jerry isn’t thinking about math or English. Because at three o’clock, he’s history.
Jerry Mitchell is having one of those days.
He’s late for high school, his car has a flat tire and he’s been sent to the dean’s office. But worst of all, he’s incurred the wrath of the feared new student, Buddy Revell, the biggest, meanest, downright nastiest guy in class who forces him into a fight at 3 P.M. in the school parking lot.
Poor Jerry has just seven hours, a good supply of wit, a few friends, a savvy kid sister and the worst luck of any kid alive, to find a way out of his tough problem.
As the clock ticks away and the suspense mounts, Jerry realizes there’s no way he can avoid facing the muscle-bound bully in a fight that will probably be his last. It’s brain against brawn in one of today’s best contemporary teenage comedies.
