Meet Edwin Hanratty.  Or maybe you don't want to meet him.  He's a misfit and at the bottom of the 8th grade pecking order.  He is disliked by his teachers as well as his classmates.  He has only one friend -- Flake.  Edwin and Flake spend hours talking about how much they hate school, their teachers and their classmates.  And then Flake comes up with an idea.  Pull off another Columbine.  That will show them all.  As the plans evolve and X day draws near, Edwin has doubts about the plan.  But not Flake.  What will happen when Project X goes into play?
