Travis has the million-dollar smile. Freddy has the million-dollar brain. Together the two buddies—one the coolest kid and the other the biggest brain at Walla Walla Junior High—set out to save Travis’s dad from disaster by winning big in Las Vegas, armed only with Travis’s charm and Freddy’s latest invention: a pair of glasses wirelessly connected to a laptop programmed with his homemade guaranteed-to-win-at-blackjack software. Safely ensconced in the Elvis Suite in their hotel, room service flowing freely, everything looks good until they meet Johnny Large, the meanest— and shortest—gangster in Vegas. Once Johnny Large is on the scene, it’s going to take a lot of luck (and some help from Sam, their sassy new lady cabdriver friend) to get out of Vegas alive! Buckle up for a funny, scary thrill ride, as our heroes try to come of age with their heads still attached to their bodies.
