Orca Book Publishers
Ian learns that the company that makes the uniforms for his school is reputed to use child labor.
The principal announces that the school is implementing uniforms, and Ian finds himself caught in a conflict. His friend Julia wants him to devise a plan to fight the decision, and the principal is determined to convince Ian the uniforms are a good idea. Ian wants nothing to do with the issue. While doing research for a social-justice class, he learns that the manufacturer of the uniforms is on the top-ten list for human-rights violations. When he tells the principal this, all he gets is a reminder that the penalty for refusing to wear the uniforms is suspension, and Ian finds himself caught in a whole new conflict--one with himself.

SummaryAdd a Summary
It's a very nicely planned book. It talks about how at Ian's school, school uniforms are introduced to his school board. Many people hate this idea, because they have no proof against it. But one day, Ian discovers a logo on the tag of the shirt. He searches it online. That company is one of the top ten worst child labor companies! He tries to stop them by talking to the principle, Mr. Roberts. But, he already knows. He cannot change a thing. He decides to use the power of a flash mob and get the whole school to storm in with no uniform, possibly getting them expelled. What will happen? No one knows.
