«Il y a des causes pour lesquelles je suis prêt à mourir, mais aucune pour laquelle je serais prêt à tuer», dit M. Roberts. Qui est l'auteur de cette citation?

Lorsque le directeur de l'école annonce une nouvelle politique relative aux uniformes, les amis d'Ian font pression sur lui pour qu'il s'y oppose. Sa meilleure amie Julia l'incite fortement à protester, mais le directeur est également déterminé à convaincre Ian que les uniformes sont une bonne chose. Ian ne veut pas s'en mêler—pour commencer. Puis il fait une découverte qui l'oblige à prendre position—peu importe le prix à payer.

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.
