Synopsis: Aaron is a dorky fifth-grader with an irrational fear of sharks—and talking to girls. Because not even a mouth full of razor sharp teeth could frighten him more than the idea of talking to Ruby, the dark princess of his dreams. So when Aaron decides to brave a bully-infested pool party to finally introduce himself, he discovers it’s up to him to navigate the dangerous waters and save her from the neighborhood’s most fearsome predators.
