Enjoy this chapter sampler for TWERP by Mark Goldblatt, on shelves MAY 28TH, 2013!

It's not like I meant for Danley to get hurt. . . .

Julian Twerski isn't a bully. He's just made a big mistake. So when he returns to school after a weeklong suspension, his English teacher offers him a deal: if he keeps a journal and writes about the terrible incident that got him and his friends suspended, he can get out of writing a report on Shakespeare. Julian jumps at the chance. And so begins his account of life in sixth grade--blowing up homemade fireworks, writing a love letter for his best friend (with disastrous results), and worrying whether he's still the fastest kid in school.

Lurking in the background, though, is the one story he can't bring himself to tell, the one story his teacher most wants to hear.

 My English teacher, Mr. Selkirk, says
I have to write something, and it has to be long, on ac-count of the thing that happened over winter recess—  which, in my opinion, doesn’t amount to much. It’s notlike I meant for Danley to get hurt, and I don’t think that what happened was one hundred percent my fault, oreven a lot my fault, even though I don’t deny that I wasthere. So I guess I deserved to get suspended like the restof them. I mean, maybe I could’ve stopped it.
Maybe.
Butnow the suspension is over, and Selkirk says I’ve got to write something, and because he says so, my dad says so,and that’s that. I know what’s going on. Selkirk thinksthat if I write about what happened, I’ll understand what
