Summary
When Daniel Musgrove's troubled family moves to Mississippi just before his junior year, he is appalled. On top of the usual teenage humiliations, he now has to learn to say "y'all" and "Co-Cola" or risk being ostracized as a Yankee. But Daniel's loneliness fades when he meets fellow outsider Tim Cousins. You only need one best friend, he figures, to make it through high school alive. Daniel and Tim become inseparable, sharing a fascination with ridicule, The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour, and Arnita Beecham, the most bewitching girl at Minor High. The boys join the cast of a bouncy evangelical musical. They take their dates to the prom in matching sky blue tuxedos. But then things start to go terribly wrong. The friends' feud with the school bully gets out of hand. They commit a small crime that grows larger and larger, and threatens to engulf the whole town.--From publisher description
