Kedon can't wait to go on the three week break from school. His parents are on a vacation for two of them and he's going to have the entire house all to himself. Except he forgot about a school project. One that would be half of his science grade, a grade he needs in order to graduate. The project? The class needs to "partner up" and take a baby home.
Luckily, it's only one of those computerized things, and Kedon's convinced it's not really a psychological exercise in "The Effects of a Child on a Young Couple". He thinks it's a not so veiled attempt at sex education; as in scaring the hell out of the seniors into not having any. Thing is, most of the seniors are already eighteen years old. Not only is it too late, it’s going to fall on deaf ears.
And to top it off, the popular and powerful Tarell Alan has decided Kedon is going to be his "wife" for the project. But Kedon's not worried. Tarell did it to prove a point. He isn't really going to spend the whole three weeks helping Kedon to take care of a baby. Especially one that seems to cry all the time.
But Kedon turns out to be wrong. Now Kedon is on his feet constantly, walking a colicky baby and running from a horny daddy! What’s a boy to do?
