The plot of the book was like this:
Main character: I only have one friend and I get the shit kicked out of me in football but I get up anyway to show my unbreakable will. I'm sad because my mom died.
Vigils: Sup? We're the ridiculously overpowered secret society of the school, everyone sell twice as many chocolates in the chocolate sale at twice the price.
Main character: How audacious. Do I dare disturb the universe? I'll not sell for reasons not known but mainly because the Vigils are gay.
Vigils: Yeah you'll be treated like a hero at first but we'll turn the whole school against you, culminating in hiring a bully to beat the shit out of you in a fight you can't get out of so that you are left bleeding from the face on the floor about to get wheeled out on a stretcher.
Main Character: Oh shit... Remember this, friend character, never fight the power, always go along with the crowd. Now I leave to never be seen again.
