Period 8 has always been a safe haven, and high school senior Paulie 'The Bomb' Baum has always been a constant attendee since freshman year. As Paulie, Hannah, and their friends - along with the help of sympathetic teacher - try to unravel the mystery of a missing classmate (and the mystery of the human heart), the ultimate bully takes aim at the school. Who is a friend and who is not?

Review:

“Period 8 is the best of Crutcher: warmth, humor, and spot-on teen reality, but coupled with terrifying intensity and a shocking ending.” (Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Wintergirls and Speak)

Praise for Deadline: “As usual, Crutcher does not hesitate to incorporate serious subject matter within an engaging first-person narrative.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review))

“Crutcher uses dark humor and self-deprecation effectively to avoid maudlin situations, and teens will appreciate the respectful tone of the work.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for Whale Talk:“Crutcher offers an unusual yet resonant mixture of black comedy and tragedy that lays bare the superficiality of the high school scene.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Cataclysmic and triumphant.” (Kirkus Reviews)

From the Back Cover:

Period 8. An hour a day. You can hang out. You can eat your lunch. You can talk. Or listen. Or neither. Or both. Nothing is off-limits. The only rule is that you keep it real; that you tell the truth.

Heller High senior Paul Baum—aka Paulie Bomb—tells the truth. Not the "Wow, that's an ugly sweater" variety of truth, but the other kind. The truth that matters. It might be hard. It often hurts. But Paulie doesn't know how not to tell it. When he tells his girlfriend Hannah the life-altering, messed-up, awful truth, his life falls apart. The truth can get complicated, fast.
