Description
Tessa McPhail has a bad habit--tagging--that lands her at New Directions, an alternative school in Montreal's toughest neighborhood. The school is far from Tessa's home and full of troubled kids. To make matters worse, half of every school day is devoted to boxing. The other students think boxing is cool. Not Tessa, who cannot handle violence of any kind. But when a neighbor starts a petition to have New Directions closed down, Tessa discovers something worth fighting for, both in and out of the ring.

display_description "How bad can an alternative school be? Tessa McPhail has landed at New Directions, a last-chance school in Montreal's roughest neighborhood. The kids are tough and the school is far from home, but the very worst thing is the curriculum: 50 percent academics, 50 percent boxing. The other students think boxing is cool. Tessa disagrees. But when a neighbor starts a petition to have New Directions closed down, Tessa discovers something worth fighting for, both in and out of the ring"--Page 4 of cover.
