Growing up isn’t easy. For eleven-year-old David Jennings, moving to a new town makes it even harder. He does his best to make friends, but the best he can do is a small group led by the town bully, who gets thrills picking on kids and abusing animals. David reluctantly follows until events force him to consider actions that could change – or end – his life. This is a timeless middle grade story about the classic topics of bullying and growing up.
