for Project X by Jim Shepard
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.
