Derrick is an 8 year old with problems. His mother doesn’t like his mouthy friend, Mister Sock. His teachers think he’s a clown. His house is for sale. Joey Wruckler steals his lunch money. And Marlene, the wet spitter, is obsessed with marrying him! ¬†When Derrick gets suspended and fails to pay off Joey, Joey steals Mister Sock. Derrick must return to the horrible place called school – dodging ugly teachers and dopey girls to save his sock buddy – the only one who can talk to his departed father. Everything is resolved in a no-holds-barred RoShamBo competition. A “Diary of a Wimpy kid”-like tale with a crabby babysitter. (
