Summary
For as long as they can remember, Brendan and Gary have been mercilessly teased and harassed by the jocks who rule Middletown High. But not anymore. After stealing a small arsenal of guns from a neighbor, they take their classmates hostage at a school dance. In the panic of this desperate situation, it soon becomes clear that only one thing matters to Brendan and Gary: revenge. For the twentieth anniversary of Give a Boy a Gun, Todd Strasser has revised his chilling author's note, updated the footnotes throughout with brand-new statistics, and provided insight regarding the ever-changing landscape -- and the unfortunate stagnation -- of gun control in the United States
