Story Summary

It's the first day of school and Andy plans to get expelled to avoid the regimen and boredom of school. That is until their new teacher arrives late because the yacht she was sailing was destroyed by a tsunami which stranded her on a desert island until the helicopters saw her smoke signals. Really?! He's not sure she's telling the truth, but by the end of the first day he figures he should at least wait until the stunt lessons are over.
