Annotation In Jim Shepard's sixth novel, Edwin Hanratty is a disaffected eighth grader with vague fantasies of violence and revenge against a world that doesn't understand him. When his friend Flake plants the seed of the scheme the boys call Project X, Edwin's inability to cope reaches epic proportions.
