Continuously haunted by past misdeeds and failures to act, Earl needs an academic achievement to feed his starving ego. Thirteen-year-old Kaseem Abdullah thinks that being cool requires him to control everything around him-including himself. He is a malicious, confused problem student who has a penchant for pilfering necklaces from innocent female victims. But after he acts out in school one time too many, he is confronted by school administrators who graciously decide to give him another undeserved chance to redeem himself. After transferring Kaseem into Earl's already troubled classroom, Kaseem pretends to turn over a new leaf, providing Earl with an unjustified sense of accomplishment. Yet outside of school, Kaseem continues on his path of self-destruction. Earl mistakenly thinks his miscreant student has become a fine citizen. When the truth is finally discovered, Earl must come to terms not only with his student's deception, but also with his own personal flaws.
