Meet Jack. A former reality television star and current 8th grader. Some people might feel he has it made with the tv bit but Jack is just trying to live a normal life. But that is not so easy when you think you are the only 8th grader who hasn't gone through puberty yet.  Jack is obsessed with this and he tries to fake it so the other kids won't make fun of him.  There are many cringe-worthy events along the way and Jack must also deal with a reunion show of the tv show he was on.
