Ryder Jackson (played by Lukas Radovich) has had his head in the clouds on Home and Away (opens in new tab), since finding a car he wants to buy.

The teenager has been working extra shifts at the local juice bar to raise the extra cash he needs to buy his first car. Trouble is, Ryder has been neglecting his school studies while working overtime. So when his school teacher aunt Roo Stewart (Georgie Parker) discovers her nephew has yet to complete his English assignment, she's not happy!

Roo warns Ryder to get his act together and hand in his assignment or she'll deduct 10% off his mark every day until it is completed! But will Ryder really start hitting the books?
