Stink Bomb

(1998)
A novel by

 
Kenny feels like a lowlife creep. It's not just because he made an embarrassing, um, slip in class, but because he let Alice Flowers take the blame. Alice is already the class outcast and the butt of everyone's jokes. Now, thanks to Kenny and a couple of class clowns who joined in, Alice is labeled "Stink Bomb," and Kenny's shameful little mishap remains his own guilty secret.

But Kenny has a conscience, and keeping silent while Alice takes the flak is getting to him. Kenny thinks he's making it better by being friendly to the poor girl--until the other kids start yelling, "Kenny loves Alice. " He knows he's a dead man if he's hooked up with Alice, so this time it's his mouth that "blows a gasket"--blurting out that he hates Alice. Now he feels even worse. Kenny believes there's a good person somewhere inside him, yet he's blowing so much hot air that he's turning himself into a sneak and a liar--everything he doesn't want to be. Somehow he has to get himself out of this mess... but can he do that without pinning the "Stink Bomb" label on himself? Kenny feels like a lowlife creep.
