Emma McKernal is a high school junior with wild ideas. But when one indirectly causes the death of the drama teacher's pet parrot, she must replace it. The problem is, she doesn't have any money. Luckily there is a video game contest with a $2,000 grand prize, and playing video games is her number one hobby. Will she manage to win the contest, get a new bird, and fool the teacher to get out of trouble? Probably not, but she's going to try anyway.
