Summary

Although Sam bullys Davey in front of his friends, when he gets to know him, he realizes he likes him, but won't let his friends know, until a joke endangers Davey's life.

He's gone.
And it's his fault -
The fault of the class idiot
The class bully

Davey is a new boy and Sam can't stand him. He thinks Davey is a first-class, grade A, top-of-the-dung-heap moron. But when the two are thrown together, Sam discovers that Davey's eccentric way of looking at the world makes life a lot more exciting...

Until something terrible happens...

A beautiful, funny and sad story, told completely in verse.

Book banded for guided reading by the Institute of Education - verse novel / profound themes for discussion

NOTE: Davey is allergic to nuts and when Sam's friend, Alex makes Davey unknowingly eat a peanut, he suffers a severe allergic reaction and the teacher has to inject him with adrenaline.
