Contents: 'WHAT ARE YOUR BEST AND WORST QUALITIES?' This is the title of the essay Addison Schacht has to submit to gain a place at his chosen university. Straightaway, Addison, 18, sees an opportunity to tell his story-so-far: to unburden himself, so to speak. And boy is there a lot to unburden. His business --
dealing pot to his peers --
is booming. His relationship with Digger, his best friend (NOT girlfriend) is getting more and more 'complicated'. His classmate Kevin Broadus was murdered point blank, and now Addison can't stop thinking about who killed him, and why? And then there's the small question of the rest of his life ...Over the course of his unorthodox application, Addison confesses his triumphs, tragedies, strengths, weaknesses, blessings and curses to his academic jury. Fans of THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER will love this truth-telling debut, and Addison Schacht finds good company among American literature's cadre of unsettled, restless youth from Huck Finn to Holden Caulfield.
Responsibility: Sam Munson.

Abstract:

For a high school senior Addison Schacht has a lot of preoccupations, like selling drugs to his classmates, getting into college, and his complicated relationship with his best friend (NOT his girlfriend) Digger. And he's just added another to the list: the murder of his classmate Kevin Broadus, and his own obsessive plan to investigate the death. When presented with an essay question on his application to the University of Chicago--What are your best and worst qualities?--Addison finds himself provoked into giving his final, unapologetic say about all of the above and more, and the thrilling result is an unforgettable trip through the Washington, D.C. teenage underworld.
