Stuey has a secret that makes him not want to start second grade. His secret is that he can't read very well. His best friend, Will, loves to read. He has been reading since he was four years old. Stuey is sure he is the only one in second grade who can't read, then he meets his second grade teacher, Ms. Curtis. Ms. Curtis is a new teacher who tells the class that she wants to be their friend. Maybe second grade won't be so bad, after all. Other chapters are about Stuey's favorite holiday, Halloween, when Stuey has a plan to top all his previous Halloween capers, Stuey's soccer woes, and an end-of-the-school-year surprise.
