High school can be tough. But with teachers like Mr. Griffin it can seem impossible.

They only planned to scare him. But sometimes even the best-laid plans go wrong.

This is a pretty good book, especially if you like suspense! The storyline is kind of hard to keep up with because it constantly goes from one scene to another in some parts of the book, so it's hard to keep track of what day it is after the students kill Mr. Griffin and everything, but this book will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat!
