Sixteen-year-old Ted O'Connor's parents just died in a fiery car crash, and now he's stuck with a set of semi-psycho foster parents, two foster brothers-Astin, the cocky gearhead, and . the sometimes gangsta-and an inner-city high school full of delinquents. He's having pretty much the worst year of his miserable life.
