Zander Scott lives an interesting life. Estranged from his father, his mother is an actress and model trying to raise him up right in New York. He is a scholarship student at an exclusive private school where he hangs with a bunch of misfits and trouble makers, the Cruisers. When their latest joke falls flat, the Principal hatches the idea that the Cruisers will act as peacemakers during the school wide simulation of the Civil War. But can Zander and his buddies find a non-violent solution that will keep them in school? Do they even care?

A high-interest/low-vocab novel for the late junior/middle school set. Will not blow your mind, but does ask some interesting questions.
