There are a lot of things that Tiger Turcotte likes about second grade, like art class, his teacher, Mrs. Newel and having his own seat on the bus. Donna Overton is NOT one of those things. She’s a mean, bossy know-it-all. And, lately, it seems she's going out of her way to bug him. When Donna finally pushes Tiger too far, he fights back, getting them both in trouble. As they spend the afternoon together in detention, Tiger begins to realize there may be more to Donna than he thought – and maybe girls aren’t so bad after all.
