Youngest kids in the school now,
gotta find your place all over again,
“Join a club” they say, “it’ll be fun…”
Being the first to sign up for a new club means that Jason and other seventh graders get to choose how things go, right?
Hmmm… H.A.I.R. Club isn’t about hair care at all (half the kids leave the first meeting) – its members are the only ones allowed to view the new state-of-the art security system at Flounder Bay Upper School, Maine.
Their first task – find out who is stealing all the croutons from the school cafeteria.
So they watch the late night security recordings and see a skunk heading down the hall. Then, at exactly midnight, the cafeteria is filled with high school kids – how did they get in?
A few more viewings and the eight Club members discover that those teenagers are them, five years in the future – how is this possible?
And none of them really like how their future selves behave – what can they do about that?
After a liquid + security laptop accident, the Club seeks help from Jason’s techie uncle who’s mystified by the programs on the security system – really?!?
Are they really seeing recordings from their own futures?
Why would a skunk seek out croutons?
Who donated the security system anyway?
One humane skunk trap, midnight stakeout missions, the continuous mocking of Jason’s bratty little sister – upper school is definitely different than elementary school! (except that last part, of course)
If offered a chance to see into your own future, would you?
