Todd Macon is a student at Tyler High, a typical school where things are anything but typical. When the class clown disappears, it seems as though foul play has befallen him and Todd, due to his disdain for class disrupters, becomes a prime suspect in Ross's vanishing. Todd has issues with Alec, Mike, and Dee, three fellow teens that go out of their way to disrupt their respective classes.   Todd's close friend Kathy does her best to find out the mystery of Todd's behavior as well as the connection between their teacher, Mr. Vickers, and a death that happened involving Todd. Alec's disappearance and the resulting vanishing of Dee only adds to the entanglements. The end reveals that even good friends can have "falling outs" with disastrous results.
