Fanboy has never had it good, but lately his sophomore year is turning
out to be its own special hell. The bullies have made him their
favorite target, his best (and only) friend seems headed for the dark
side (sports and popularity), and his pregnant mother and the step-fascist are eagerly awaiting the birth of the alien life form known as Fanboy"s new little brother or sister.

Fanboy, though, has a secret: a graphic novel he"s been working
on without telling anyone, a graphic novel that he is convinced will
lead to publication, fame, and--most important of all--a way out of
the crappy little town he lives in and all the
people that make it hell for him.

When Fanboy meets Kyra, a.k.a. Goth Girl, he finds an outrageous,
cynical girl who shares his love of comics as well as his hatred for
jocks and bullies. Fanboy can"t resist someone who actually seems
to understand him, and soon he finds himself willing to heed her
advice--to ignore or crush anyone who stands in his way.
