Cast 5m, 4f
- Vernon Little is fifteen years old and lives with his mother in Martirio, a flea-bitten Texan town.
- His best friend just massacred sixteen of their classmates before killing himself.
- The town wants vengeance and turns its sights on Vernon, who is arrested at the start of the story.
- He seems to be guilty unless proven innocent and events soon spiral out of control.
- Vernon looks on as even his closest family and friends are seduced by the sudden fame that has fallen onto Martirio as the scene of a gruesome crime, and turn against him.
- He has to come up with a truly ingenious plan to prove his innocence.
- This is an unusual coming-of-age story with many twists and turns and a thoroughly likeable central character.
- Think Catcher in the Rye, on speed, interlaced with pop songs and as a black comedy.
