"You're all gloomy and sarcastic because you know you're an outcast."
"No, I'm sarcastic because it's illegal to set you on fire and throw you down the stairs."
Ah, high school. The fresh smell of obnoxious cologne, nasty food, and that one kid who bathes once a month. The sounds of crying, teachers losing it, and kids making out in the hall. And what's that feeling in the air? It's the sadness of the students evaporating into the sky.
Of course, it doesn't help when your classmates are overly-emotional airheads who only care about the new it-couple and that poor kid who apparently needs a nose job. However, this is the plight of Trent Gunner, a pessimistic cynic with a deep hatred for this terrible world.
The stupidity of the students at Sotomayor High sure is frightening, and it seems like Trent is on his own to navigate the new punches being thrown.
(See what I did there? Navigate? Gee, just read this already...).
