The principal announces that the school is implementing uniforms, and Ian finds himself caught in a conflict. His friend Julia wants him to devise a plan to fight the decision, and the principal is determined to convince Ian the uniforms are a good idea. Ian wants nothing to do with the issue. While doing research for a social-justice class, he learns that the manufacturer of the uniforms is on the top-ten list for human-rights violations. When he tells the principal this, all he gets is a reminder that the penalty for refusing to wear the uniforms is suspension, and Ian finds himself caught in a whole new conflict—one with himself.

Also available in French.

This book was so great. Definitely recommend... NOT. In fact, after reading this book at school, I was so upset that I literally went to the grocery store, and bought one thousand packs of febreze so that I can spray it into my smelling device (my nose, if you are an inbred and can't understand what that means) to somehow be able to mask the poo poo stench this book embedded into my nose. After spraying it into my nose and all over myself, I became a walking febreze monster. It was so strong that my great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great aunt twice removed, soldered back into our family tree, then removed again, came back from her grave just to tell me that the whole underworld couldn't stand the stench of the book either (because all bad smells are present in the underworld forever), and that everyone there was grateful that I finally eradicated the vile, disgusting, appalling smell of the book. They then created a holiday for me on march 20 every year to finally celebrate the greatest moment in the history of everything.
Don't get the book.
