Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Michael is not happy, and he is keeping a list-a list of all the reasons he hates school. When the teacher sees him writing so avidly, she is impressed, and so is Michael. But when he is paired with one of the reasons he hates school (Sharon Cramshaw) to do a project on families, he finally comes to realise that the real reason he hates school is nothing to do with school, it's all to do with something in his past.
