Publisher's Summary

A new town, a new school, a new start. That's what 14-year-old Gray Wilton believes as he chants, "It's gonna be better, gonna be better here." But it doesn't take long for Gray to realize that nothing's going to change--there are bullies in every school, and he's always their punching bag.Their brutal words, physical abuse, and emotional torture escalate until Gray feels trapped in a world where he has no control, no support systems, and no way out--until the day he enters the halls of Greenford High School with his father's semiautomatic in hand.Award-winning novelist Nancy Garden, author of the groundbreaking novel Annie on My Mind, once again goes out on a limb, this time to show readers the cruelty of bullying and the devastating effects it can have.

Critic Reviews

"This is a hard-hitting and eloquent look at the impact of bullying, and the resulting destruction of lives touched by the violence. It reinforces the need to have adults in the lives of teens who not only see, but also take action against the behavior." (School Library Journal)

Every high school teacher should read

I feel like everyone involved in high school administration should listen to it read this book. It is very detailed about the things to look for when a kid has been pushed to far by his classmates. It would help avoid a lot of misery and possibly even save some lives if more people who work with kids were able to read this book and apply the knowledge. Not an easy read but a damned good one.
