Danny knew his sophomore year would be stressful . . . but he didn't expect his school to burn down on the first day.
To make matters worse (and they were about to get a lot worse), he -- and his three best friends -- receive an email in their inboxes from the principal of their rival, King's Academy, offering full-rides to attend the town's prestigious boarding school. Danny wants nothing to do with King's Academy and says no. Of course his mother says yes. So off he goes to be bullied and picked on for not being part of the popular and rich "in crowd."
From day one at King's, Danny encounters hazing, mocking insults from girls at the "popular and pretty" table, and cafeteria food that, for such a prestigious school, tastes as if it were purchased from a military surplus supply warehouse. If he survives, Danny will have to overcome his fears of failure, rejection, and loneliness--all while standing strong in his beliefs and walking into the fire.

I could’ve died that day, along with my unborn child.
I can only imagine your expression after hearing that. Please don’t judge me as if you’re perfect. I’m opening up to you— a stranger, a fellow church-goer, a reader of drama-filled books, a distant friend. Regardless of the nature of our acquaintance, I’m confident in the fact that you can’t hurt me. I’ve suffered enough and our connection is only by the gateway of literature. I’m glad I got that part out of the way because there is so much I want to tell you.
I won’t bore you with a repetition of words or events from my last confession. Instead, I’ll tell you the events that led up to the worst moment I can remember— that morning when all I could do was cry out in horror. You may ask why I didn’t tell you all of this in the beginning. Well, my rebuttal would be, when do we ever do things completely right?
Be patient with me and I’ll tell you everything.
Let’s start from the beginning, shall we?
