Dark comedy that kept me interested from page one all the way through the end. A group of misfit teens set out to get revenge on their tormentors - but their plan for revenge goes comically awry. They have a sort of odyssey on their way to school that morning, a road trip that goes from one hilariously bad circumstance to the next.

Along the way they do a lot of growing up. By the time they arrive at the school - there's one more obstacle between them and their plan - a surprise twist that I did
How's this for a funny idea: a comedy based on a school shooting? Yeah, okay, no way is that going to work.

But it does. At the beginning, we get to know the characters, and find out why they want to shoot up the school. (Okay, not really do any shooting, just scare some bullies.) When the day of the plan arrives, disaster after disaster befalls the group. And the story becomes a (funny) comedy of errors.

At this point, though, after coming to like the characters, you start to get a little uneasy
