Eugene (Eugenius) Pomeroy is a thirteen-year-old genius born into the wealthy, prominent family for which his town is named. His life is good except for one nagging problem, the enduring jealousy of Ellery Daniels, a classmate who despises him for his popularity and influence in the classroom. Ellery and her constant companion, Leggy Peggy, lead a barrage of attacks on Eugenius who is finally forced to retaliate, using his brilliant mind to create situations that defeat and humiliate Ellery. Their animosity deepens until Elvis Trumble, a hulking thug who has just moved to Pomeroy shows up at school. Elvis is unlike anyone Eugenius has ever known; he obeys no rules, he bullies and threatens, and he has no respect for anyone, including the son of the most important family in town. His presence brings an uneasy tension to the school but especially to Eugenius who is offended by Elvis’s manner and lack of respect. Ellery and Eugenius, former enemies, must now unite their forces against Elvis but soon find that he is a clever, fearless enemy, which will take all of Eugenius’s formidable brainpower and the loyalty of his many friends to overcome.
