For best friends Jeff and Wiley, the two inseparable nicknamers in 6B, there is practically nobody in their school who hasn't had the dubious honor of receiving a new, more appropriate name from them. They've dubbed their own underachieving class "The Dim Bulbs", their pop-eyed principal is better known as "Deer in Headlights", and their new enormous football coach-turned-English teacher is now "Mr. Huge".

It's only when a certain spunky red-haired environmentalist named Cassandra enters their lives that they begin to doubt their nicknaming prowess. No name seems to say it all.

On top of everything, some of the nicknames that Jeff and Wiley have invented are backfiring, and their new teacher is in danger of losing his job. Will the nicknamers be able to get it together before it's too late?
