Scrawl by Mark Shulman

Hope,     15

Scrawl   
Roaring Brook Press    2010

             Tod Munn is a bully, and has no problem with that. He is the toughest kid in school, but lately he is losing his grip on the kids. When he and his friends get caught doing something terribly wrong, Tod is forced by a guidance counselor to write his story in a notebook. Required to fill a journal for a month, Tod begins to open up about himself, though not willingly. With fierce honesty and heartfelt humor, Tod’s story begins to take shape during his afterschool scrawls. Sometimes the bad guy is not always what he seems…
