Thirteen year old Cody is not having a very good year.  He and his mom have moved to Texas to take care of his grandmother.  You would think things would be OK since his cousin lives just next door so it's not like he doesn't know anyone in town.  But Hayden is a bully and now Cody is his target.  Try as he might, Cody just can't convince anyone that Hayden is bullying him.  But now things are getting out of hand and Cody is being set up by Hayden.  Can he prove it?  Can he use his sense of humor to get him out of this mess?  Or will he laugh till he cries?
