Nick Green is one of the top agents for the US Government. He's effective, clever and deadly. He's also got a paper on Crime and Punishment due Tues, a biology quiz this afternoon and thirty pages on the rise and fall of the Roman Empire to read tonight...because Nick is sixteen years old. Welcome to the world of AIM HIGH, where after school jobs are a killer.
Marcus catches Nick on a "job" and has to disclose his deep, dark secret as well in order to not have Nick kill him; Nick has a break-through with the girl of his dreams, Amanda; Nick attempts not to fail Ms. Walker's chem class even as she comes onto him...all while he's trying to figure out how to take out the Russian mercenary planning to steal a radioactive isotope in order to make a dirty bomb.
Just when Nick has made headway with the girl of his dreams, he comes face to face with the Russian mercenary. Now, Nick's forced to choose between doing his job and making his date. To make matters worse, the mob hit from the other day didn't go as flawlessly as he thought, and now the Mob Boss is hot on Nick's trail.
Nick decides to drop out of the government program that has enlisted him as its teenage killing machine. For the first time, he watches TV, does his homework, and doesn't kill Marcus for telling Amanda's biggest secret to the entire school. Back to a normal life...at least for now.
Nick makes headway with Amanda when she shares her big secret. Just as Nick is about to confide in her, his "former" job gets in the way again as all aspects of his life suddenly collide at the swim meet.
