But things go from bad to worse when Campbell crosses the school’s toughest and most feared teacher, Ron Strickland (Ice Cube), causing Strickland to be fired. To Campbell’s shock—not to mention utter terror—Strickland responds by challenging him to a fist fight after school.

Crushworthy Characters: Kate Anstruther
The Crown and Key Trilogy features great story lines and a fun cast of characters. The world is a combination of magic, steampunk, and merry Old England. There really wasn't a character that I disliked in the series. It was hard to narrow down which one to write about. It was a tie between this featured character and Penny Carter. I'm picky about female characters and both of them are crushworthy. However, I went with the lovely Kate for this
