This gripping novel in prose-poetry form interweaves the stories of four high-school students: Kurt, the “freak” who gets bullied by his peers; Ryan, the football star who walks the hallways like a king; Tisha, who feels like an unattractive misfit because she’s of mixed race; and Floater, the operator who acts as the principal’s right-hand man. During the course of a single school day, escalating events involving bullying, racism, and an accusation of rape bring these four very different teenagers together. As tensions rise and emotions reach the breaking point, will Kurt, Ryan, Tisha, and Floater be able to reach out to one another before tragedy occurs?
