A heart-warming and hilarious story about one geek's journey through school! Alan Gubbins is fed up with being the school nerd. Every day he receives wedgies and insults, especially at the hands of Chris Preston: bully, jock and all-round rogue. And so, after a particularly harrowing incident, Alan decides enough is enough. Enlisting the help of fellow nerds Gary and Veejay, he embarks on a personal quest that takes him from the mud and tears of a rugby pitch to the arms of a beautiful girl, all to achieve the ultimate prize: coolness.
