Hi-Lo. The kids in classroom 4B have a reputation as the "baddest" kids in school. What no one sees is that each kid has a reason for acting that way. Mila has been removed from her mom's care and placed with her aunt, whom she doesn't trust. Landon has trouble learning, but doesn't want anyone to know. Jordan's father was recently sent to jail. Jayme has been taking care of her younger siblings while her mother starts dating again. Together the "bad kids" in 4B learn about acceptance, stepping out of their molds, and confronting life's challenges.
