Average: 5 (1 vote)

Magnetic compost heaps, man-eating bubble baths, and other disasters erupt when an inventive, trumpet-playing seventh-grader takes up his devious sister’s challenge. To win a David Beckham autographed soccer jersey—and avoid playing a duet with his sister at the student concert—he must befriend an unsociable nerd and introduce his sister to the nerd’s hunky, trumpet-playing brother. He sets off on his adventure with a brilliant game plan, until it starts to unravel.
