#1 Calgary Herald Bestseller
Just when Andy starts to feel like he finally belongs, can he stand up to the person he trusted the most?


Andy Crockett doesn't fit in at his new school -- not with the goths, not with the jocks, and certainly not with the brains. Not even, really, with The Six, a group of misfits who hang out with each other mostly because they can't stand hanging out with anyone else.

But maybe Andy's luck is changing ... and all because he is in Mr. Reztlaff's grade ten social class -- Mr. Retzlaff, the coolest teacher; in fact, the coolest thing about Parkerville Comprehensive. Social is awesome from day one. It's the class that looks at World War II, Hitler, and the Holocaust. It's the class Andy wants to ace -- and make Mr. Retzlaff proud.

But eventually Andy also begins to understand that acing the class might just have a greater cost than he's willing to pay. And when it turns out that Mr. Retzlaff might not be so cool after all, Andy is facing the most difficult decision of his life.
