    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    There's a book called
    "A Bundle of Sticks" I read it when I was a kid. Same concept. Except at the end the kid realizes that the true meaning of a warrior is knowing how not to fight.

    The publishers had to reject the original title of "******".

    ... I think this is one of those zen things you know.
    A real warrior knows how to fight,
    but also how not to fight.

    Then you diffuse the situation by sitting down and working your differences out over a glass of lemonade.

    God, I'd love a book like this where the main character just gets the **** kicked out of him and the last words of the book are the bully going
    "Karate fag."

    Would anyone believe that I'm actually working on a YA series of martial arts books?

    Joke, see, because the non-slang definition of a "******" is a "bundle of sticks"

    and the main character... is rather stupid and... well, hell with it I am not explaining this.

    Just something I've been kicking around for a while. I'd like to see some unMcDojo, unBullshido...but most of all...unsucky and uncheesy...MA books for young adults. I'm also trying to work in some themes from the Buddhist lessons my master is teaching me. Also, given that there are virtually no characters from Asian American kids to identify with in the media, I'd like to offer something there.

    I've got some character shells, some plot devices, etc...and drawn out a basic plot for the first story arch with ideas for the next couple but, you know...life and work and my own training tend to interfere with the great American novel.

    I know, I read the book back in 5th grade. I just thought it would be funny picturing some agent trying to sell "******" to a publisher.
