n the wilderness of junior high, Edwin Hanratty is at the bottom of the food chain. His teachers find him a nuisance. His fellow students consider him prey. And although his parents are not oblivious to his troubles, they can't quite bring themselves to fathom the ruthless forces that demoralize him daily.
Sharing in these schoolyard indignities is his only friend, Flake. Branded together as misfits, their fury simmers quietly in the hallways, classrooms, and at home, until an unthinkable idea offers them a spectacular and terrifying release.
From Jim Shepard, one of the most enduring and influential novelists writing today, comes an unflinching look into the heart and soul of adolescence. Tender and horrifying, prescient and moving, Project X will not easily be forgotten.

From Jim Shepard, one of the most enduring and influential novelists writing today, comes an unflinching look into the heart and soul of adolescence. Tender and horrifying, prescient and moving, Project X will not easily be forgotten.Hanratty and his only friend, Flake, struggle to deal with the nightmare of junior high school--bullying, girls who taunt them, jocks who beat them up, a creepy old man who stalks them, and a disaffected sixth grader who adores them--until their demoralization is transformed into a growing yearning for a deadly revenge. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.
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.
