It's the first day of eighth grade and Harvey just knows that this year he will make first flute in the school orchestra. When Mrs. Hamilton names Tina first flute and Harvey as second, Harvey is furious. He complains that Mrs. Hamilton is a bad teacher and doesn't know what she is doing. Harvey complains a lot -- about many different things. He vows to get even with Mrs. Hamilton by disrupting orchestra practice. Will Harvey ruin everything or will he realize that sometimes you have to put the good of the whole above the individual?
