"Chokin' and Tokin'"
Lindsay smokes marijuana for the first time. Moments later, her father reminds her that she had promised to babysit for neighbors that night. Afraid to babysit by herself, she pleads Millie to babysit with her. Millie not only takes care of the child they are babysitting, but takes care of Lindsay while she anxiously deals with the effects of smoking pot. The geeks are embarrassed in front of their peers when Bill reveals their allergies and ailments to Ms. Foote (Leslie Mann). Not believing that Bill is actually deathly allergic to peanuts, Alan puts peanuts into Bill's sandwich. After Bill eats one bite of the sandwich, Alan realizes that Bill was telling the truth and Bill is rushed to the hospital. 
"Dead Dogs and Gym Teachers"
Lindsay and Kim accidentally run over Millie's dog one night. Lindsay wants to come clean to Millie, but Kim threatens that if Lindsay confesses, she will react violently. Feeling guilty, Kim befriends Millie and asks her to join the freaks to witness The Who, live in concert. Meanwhile, Nick teaches himself to play guitar and writes a love ballad for Lindsay, and Bill, already having a rocky relationship with Coach Fredricks, is devastated to hear that his mother has been dating him. 
"Noshing and Moshing"
While trying to escape his problems with his parents and Kim, Daniel becomes attracted to Jenna Zank, a dropout from McKinley who is into the punk scene. To try and impress her, Daniel changes his appearance and meets her at a punk show and brings Nick and Ken along as well. Trying to cope with the knowledge that his father is unfaithful to his mom and whether or not to tell her, Neal focuses all of his energy into his new ventriloquism act, neglecting school in the process. The Weir parents become intoxicated at the Schweibers' party, while Lindsay becomes attracted to Neil's older brother Barry (David Krumholtz), who is back in town from college. Lindsay is given detention after coming to the aid of a girl being attacked by a boy. 
Good Book
Rogue Island follows a reporter, L.S.A. Mulligan, as his neighborhood is devastated by a series of fatal arsons. By the end of the book, you do learn who did it and why. In the meantime, the book can be difficult to stomach. There are 79 chapters in the 302 page book, and that is a bit jarring at times. One thing I found especially difficult in the story was the deaths of children in the fires at the beginning. Fortunately, after that there are no other children killed. However, if you are disturbed by generous cursing, and blunt sexuality, you probably won't enjoy this book. The story itself is very interesting, and the descriptions of Rhode Island and Providence specifically are very surprising in the level of corruption, and acceptance of such, detailed. Mulligan is willing to give his life to cover the arsons and dig into who is responsible in order to stop them.

I recommend this book if you won't be bothered by it's graphic nature.
