Louel | 2 comments A teen is sent to a dead end school for delinquents due to his bad grades (I think in the book he was too lazy to care). He has the ability to say exacting things to insult/hurt the people he talks to. While he is there, he makes friends with a kid who is a chronic plagiarist, one who is a kleptomaniac, and I think one that is a pyromaniac. There are the default bully characters and the honest 'nice guy' teacher with good intentions.

The cover was illustrated powder blue with a desk or chair on it, and I think part of the main character's face. The book is a little over 200 pages and aimed at young teens. It would have been published in the late 90s, early 2000s.

Plot spoilers below because it's one of the few things I remember about the book
