Gordon Korman knows the types of books kids like to read, considering he published his first novel at the ripe, old age of 12. Since then, his unique brand of offbeat humor has helped him become a New York Times best-selling author. In this third tale featuring Griffin "The Man with the Plan" Bing, a tough new principal gets on Griffin's last nerve, and the feeling is mutual. When a valuable ring is stolen from a school display case, Griffin realizes he's been framed for the crime. Things go from bad (alternative school) to worse (electronic anklet) quickly. And for the first time ever, Griffin has no plan.
