Synopsis: Brimming with humor and hope, this contemporary tween comedy is perfect for fans of Tommy Greenwald and Megan Schul.
What happens when you finally capture the attention of your first crush? Do you suddenly know what to do? Do you magically learn the secrets of love? Not even close.
Follow eighth graders Sam (the class clown), Duke (the intellectual), and Chollie (the athlete) as they fumble their way through boyfriend territory for the very first time. With so much to worry about as the school year ends—finals, commencement speeches, the baseball championship, the graduation party—the guys feel ill-equipped to handle the stress of their new relationships. But if they're dumped before the last day of middle school school, they'll start high school as losers. The. Pressure. Is. On.
