But what if he works ten times as hard and still isn't afforded the same opportunities as his privileged RAD classmates? To make matters worse, Drew is trying not to withdraw from his buddy Liam, who might be one of those privileged kids. And their mutual friend, Jordan, doesn't know how to keep the group together. Will Drew ever find a way to bridge the divide so they can all truly accept each other? Moreover, will he ever be able to accept himself? This box set of two bestselling graphic novels makes an excellent gift!
