Summary
"Why does Skippy, a fourteen-year-old boy at Dublin's venerable Seabrook College, end up dead on the floor of the local doughnut shop? Could it have something to do with his friend Ruprecht Van Doren, an overweight genius who is determined to open a portal into a parallel universe using ten-dimensional string theory? Could it involve Carl, the teenage drug dealer and borderline psychotic who is Skyippy's rival in love? Or could "the Automator", the ruthless, smooth-talking principal intent on modernizing the school, have something to hide?"--Inside flap
