Sadie Duff needs a protector. And if theres no one willing to step up and take the place voluntarily, she'll pay them to. After years of torment and humiliation from her peers she's had enough. So when her and her father move back to their old town, she seeks out the baddest, meanest boy in school....for help. But this rebel may have a soft nuggety center no one knows about. Not even him. And when the small, bossy girl pushes her way into his life, there's only one name is Sam's mind: Sadie.
