187 > Wiki


After being felled by a vicious stabbing attack precipitated by failing a student, a determined Brooklyn high school science teacher heads west for a fresh start. But his new assignment--substitute relief in a gang-ridden school for a teacher on "stress leave"--proves even more exhausting, as his new pupils' resistance to his teaching soon provokes a potentially deadly desperation. Penned by first-timer Scott Yagemann, a seven-year veteran of the LA school system. "187" is California police code for murder.
