Summary, etc.: At the end of grade ten,15-year-old Caz's life takes a different path when she is expelled for punching her boyfriend in the face. This incident promotes Caz's enrollment into Dogwood Senior Secondary, a small school dedicated to students who may need more individualized programs. It's here where she soon discovers she has dyslexia. Once in the "sped" class, Caz hooks up with a girl by the name of Amanda who concentrates more on getting into trouble than staying out of it. Feeling as if her world is falling apart, what with her parents' recent separation and her missing her old school friends, Caz gets caught up in the reckless lifestyle of Amanda. Stealing money, shoplifting, and attacking other students physically and verbally are some of the antics of which Caz finds herself a part. When another "sped," Dodie, whom Caz and Amanda have picked on, commits suicide, Caz is forced to take a long hard look at who she has become.
