Diary of a Witness by Catherine Ryan Hyde

From the book jacket:

One day they taunt you.

One day they trip you.

One day they break you.

One day everything will change.

Although Diary of a Witness begins rather slowly, the tension builds throughout the book, and I stayed up until midnight to finish it. We are introduced to Ernie, an overweight target of the school bullies, and his only friend Will, who is not only an outcast, but also has a terrible home life.

Ernie and Will have each other's backs, but what will Ernie do when betraying his best friend could save lives - even though those lives are the very bullies who are making it nearly impossible for Ernie and Will get through the day?
