Publisher's Summary

As a student named Rick Starr experiences elementary school, middle school, and high school, he learns more about gender roles, psychological isolation, bullying, and apathy than about reading, writing, and arithmetic. After suffering through bad teachers, navigating the social ladder, confronting bullies, and completing countless standardized tests, he has a revelation about public school in America: It's comprised of sex, lies, and scantrons.

Carried away in a flood of cruelness & pessimism.

Halfway through I wanted the main character to turn himself around and become a success. I realize this may not happen in real life, but neither does this horrible view on life.
A troubling read.
