How to survive being good

Like a flashback memory, hes there in my mind: skimming up the stairs at school, his sloppy old T-shirt big as a sail, red tie-dyed dragon T-shirt, who wears stuff like that? No one. Jinsen.

The kids at Edward Rucher High School call Jinsen “Buddha Boy” and condemn him as a freak. With his shaved head and perpetual smile, Jinsen certainly doesnt help matters when he starts begging for lunch money in the cafeteria. So when Justin is paired with Jinsen for a class project, he plans to get done with it as soon as possible, and climb right back into his safe social niche. Then Justin discovers Jinsens incredible artistic talent and becomes curious about his beliefs. But being friends with Buddha Boy isnt simple, and Justin is forced into a cruel contest with the jocks who just cant seem to leave Jinsen, or his artwork, alone.

Kathe Koja introduces an unforgettable young man who will remind readers of the true meaning of friendship and demonstrate how to draw strength from the little gods inside each of them.

In response to "-Heather && Dana"

If you find this book confusing then you must either be stupid, or 5 years old or younger. Then to be immature enough to leave the attacking comment you did. Did you never learn how to support your opinion?
It's no wonder you aren't able to appreciate this book, you yourself don't have the level of maturity, or the level if intellegence to even write a decent comment. Despicable.
