Charles “Slick” Glickman thought his eighth grade would be a rather uneventful year, focused on being the starting running back for the Glickville Buffaloes and the student council president. Little did he know what he was in for.

Moving the kidnapping trial of his nemesis, Jeanette Johnson, from Dallas to Phoenix was a shock. But to find out the trial could possibly cause him to lose his starting position on the football team was a severe blow. Then to have to be the star witness against the woman who had made his life miserable during his seventh-grade year, and all the publicity attached to it, was even more devastating. After enduring the grueling trial, Jeanette Johnson put a curse on him at the sentencing and vowed to get him if it’s the last thing she would ever do.

Being a lady of her word, she once again makes his life miserable by escaping from prison and taking him to the deepest rain forests of Brazil. His fear of never seeing his parents or Glickville again becomes a stark reality.
