"The Knife That Killed Me" is a compelling journey through the memories of teenager Paul Varderman as he reflects on the events leading to the fatal moment his life was cut short.
Paul moves to a new school and becomes involves with 'the Freaks', a group on the periphery of school life, those who don't fit in: scene kids, emo kids, indie kids, outsiders.
At the same time he attracts the attention of the school's twisted and manipulative bully, Roth. When Paul delivers a message from Roth to the leader of a gang at a rival school, it sparks a dangerous feud.
Faced with growing pressures from both groups, Paul must decide where his friendship lies, a decision that may cost him his life.
