Miss, in her 40s, and a teacher in a boys’ school, gets up one morning and realises several things. 1. Her relationship with Johnny Depp is not a strong one, being only in her dreams. 2. Agreeing to lecture top-level Oxbridge-destined sixth formers was a bad idea, especially as there is an Expectation Of Powerpoint. 3.You can't give a boy's essay a Z, however bad it is. There will be consequences.
How will Miss cope with the threat of the sack and the fear of techno-humiliation, as well as with the vomiting Year 12, the boy who wants to be called Arnold, and the Fruit Gum that gets stuck to her shoe while she’s invigilating?
