about

Colin is tired of school bullies and other students'' refusal to speak up or "rat" on the real troublemakers. When Colin does speak out against a couple of school thugs, they post an embarrassing photo of him on a social networking website. Colin makes some new enemies in the process but also a few new allies, including the VP, Mr. Miller. One of Colin''s new unwanted allies, though, is Jerome, who is selling weapons to kids at school for "self defense."
