Summary :

FACT: Ninth grader Philip Malloy hums along with the daily tape of "The Star-Spangled Banner" when it's played in homeroom.

FACT: Margaret Narwin, teaching of English, sends Philip to the vice principal's office for breaking a faculty rule that requires students at Harrison High SChool to stand at "respectful, silent attention" during playing of the national anthem.

Then why -- and how -- does the student's version of the incident differ from the teacher's version? The question is crucial because Philip is suspended from school. Indeed, students, teachers, parents, school officials -- even the national media -- soon become caught up in charges and countercharges regarding respect, freedom, and patriotism. But what are the motives that propel these individuals into a crisis that so quickly spirals beyond their control?

In this remarkable novel, facts, people, actions, and reactions are presented in a stark documentary style. The truth -- and nothing but the truth -- can be discovered by only one person: the reader.
