"We may need to plant a bomb in Old Lady Zaller'sclassroom. "
"What?" I stared at Charlie across the monitor. Charlie smiled, and I laughed. You really had me going there, man."
"I'm completely serious." Still smiling. "We've done the research, got the info." He took a disc from the holder and inserted it into the drive. Pressed a button. The hard drive swallowed it like a snake on a mouse. A few clicks of Charlie's fingers. The file opened, screaming purple and orange letters.
Lonely outsider Paul Richmond, a high school sophomore, is surprised and pleased when popular fellow student Charlie Good befriends him. Although Charlie will only interact with him outside of school, Paul will do anything to stay on his good side--even if that means occasionally breaking the law. Then one day Charlie asks Paul to do something very dangerous--and deadly. How far will Paul go to keep Charlie as a friend?
"This isn't as nuanced as Giles' SHATTERING GLASS, but it's a dark drama of self-destruction that should make for grimly satisfying reading." - Deborah Stevenson June 2002
