This book is about four friends that are in middle school. They are left out of most things. They are not popular kids. One of them gets a job and starts a parting from the group. His friends get upset because they think he's trying to not hang out with them. Elections for school president start at school and Addie runs for president.
Addie, Skeezie, Joe and Bobby decide that they don't want to get called names anymore. They decide to make posters with every one of the worlds they have been called and put a circle and line through them. They also wan to put them all over the school. They all at first say no. Then they realize that it's worth it.
This was important because that's when they all decide that they don't want to keep being the kids they always put a side.
