Is there ever a good time to tell a lie?
When his best friend Daniel messes up at school, Omar decides to take the blame to save Daniel from getting in trouble—which makes Omar feel like a total hero!
Being treated like a hero feels great, so he does it again. But then something more serious happens, and all eyes land on Omar. Uh-oh.
The principal is convinced that Omar must have done it. Will he and his friends be able to prove his innocence, or is his good reputation ruined forever?
