Friday the Thirteenth
It is Friday the thirteenth and Callum's day gets off to a bad start. Held up firstly by his annoying spotty sister and then by two teenage thugs, Callum is soon in trouble with Mr Wiggins, a strict new supply teacher. A new girl, Daisy, arrives at school and this seems only to add to Callum's problems.
Surely the day could not get any worse ... or could it?
