High school juniors Nick and his best friend Penny are viciously attacked by bullies who start rumors that they’re both gay. Things seem bleak when a video of Nick being stripped and his boxer shorts flown from the school flagpole hits the internet, threatening to become a full-blown scandal, but the situation really deteriorates when one of the bullies turns into a psychotic killer.
The Boxer Shorts Rebellion is a suspenseful thriller, a contemporary novel about the dangers surrounding modern teens. Taut and compelling, it tackles the grim issue of bullying with biting, sometimes savage humor. A raw, compelling story, it brings to mind the works of S.E. Hinton and John Irving.
