Well it wasn't like Mrs. Sherman didn't warn him. If he doesn't get that thing in the drop-box by 8 AM, his cumulative library fines will top fifty bucks ($50.25, to be exact) and his library card will be revoked for life. There's just one problem: the entire town has been overrun by a horde of shark-toothed, blood-sucking worms. Did I mention that they are giant worms? Arm-sized, really. How is no one else noticing this? As if all of that wasn't bad enough, he keeps running into his newly-ex-girlfriend everywhere. Yikes.
