EZ and his gang of bullies have created a fake social media account to inflict torment and misery on their fellow Middle Schoolers. The account’s name, ‘April Aardvark’, echoes through the halls with fear and confusion. The gang is smugly satisfied with the results, until the day April Aardvark shows up for class. She is the living, breathing manifestation of the account—a mean, obscene, insult machine. The gang tries its hardest to win her over, but April has no need for friends, nor does she care who she targets.
To everyone’s horror, she is the greatest bully that ever lived.
