When Marvin Leversee moves with his family to Ramsgate, New Jersey, he is full of hopeful optimism. However, the children of Ramsgate perceive that there is something not quite right about him, that he's weird. From day one, he is bullied, humiliated, and abused by almost everybody. When his name is legally changed to Mark, it's just another thing for them to bully him about. It's also the case when he is diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. His life is made a complete misery and anything good is either short lived or taken away. Furthermore, his mother, the schools and even the police seem powerless or unwilling to do anything. After three years of living hell, Mark goes to school one day with a couple of guns and does the unthinkable. When it's all over, the questions asked are Is it because he was weird or was he driven to it and who is really to blame?
