One day when Jake's best friend offers him a piece of Strawberry Sparkle gum, something remarkable happens. Something that is so impossible that he tries to keep it to himself, afraid that people will think he is a freak. Jake has no idea that all of this is leading to an event that would force him to make a decision that will mean life or death for the class bully, Augustine.
Jake would like school if it wasn't for Augustine. She constantly picks on him and makes his life miserable. They agree to be enemies. If it wasn't for Ben, his best friend, Jake wouldn't know how he'd make it through the day until dismissal.
