"Alfred" (a pseudonym) writes a column for the school newspaper called Fly on the Wall. The column is a big hit with students. Harper thinks this is great. Or at least he does until Alfred pokes fun at a local thug, who then puts a bounty on the head of the columnist.
Things begin to get complicated when a school bully decides that Harper should be the one to find out who Alfred really is. If Harper reveals what he knows, he'll be in big trouble!
