Note: 
A classic teenage novel about bullying and anti-Semitism. It is told by a Jewish boy who is harrassed and threatened by a school bully. His so-called friends drop him, revealing their own latent anti-Semitism, and acts of psychological abuse degenerate to physical violence. In retaliation, the protagonist concocts a scheme to frame his adversary, causing the bully to be blamed for a theft he did not commit. The denoument is powerful, a fitting and unsentimental ending to a compelling piece of disturbing and thought-provoking fiction.
