The violent and hard-hitting story of an American high school massacre, with undercurrents of FIGHT CLUB, Gus Van Sant's ELEPHANT and BATTLE ROYALE Fifteen-year-old Jen B is a student at Kung Fu High School, a place where violence is routine and the only goal is survival. But keeping her head down becomes impossible with the arrival of her cousin, Jimmy Chang, a Chinese-trained kung fu master who became notorious after vanishing into thin air during a fight. Ridley, leader of the school's most vicious gang, wants to see what Jimmy can do. The only problem is Jimmy's sworn never to fight again...Jen struggles to cope with the sudden murder of her brother, an ailing father, and an uncomfortable attraction for Jimmy, while tension at school builds to a dramatic final showdown. Razor-sharp and unexpectedly moving, KUNG FU HIGH SCHOOL stamps on the throat of the American Dream.

Surely the film adaptation should be green lit by now? I imagine once Kick Ass cleans up at the box office, this will go into production. It shares the same hardcore violence and teenagers theme, with a mischevious sense of (black) humour.
The Battle Royale and Fight Club comparisons are accurate; as is the idea that these children are in a prison environment more than a school, all gang culture and sadistic wardens (or headteachers).
The story and characters are well written but it is the fights and moves that draw you in. They are described in vivid detail, really allowing the reader to visualise the action. The result of these kung fu moves are also described in sickening detail too - not for the squeamish!
