Imagine J.D. Salinger (Catcher in the Rye), William Golding (Lord of the Flies) and Stephen King (The Body) sitting down to write a fast-paced coming-of-age tale set in a working-class American neighborhood in the turbulent 1960's Vietnam era. A new kid arrives in the neighborhood, carrying the emotional scars of early parental loss, and all the aggressive attitude an alcoholic, schizophrenic stepfather can create. This is a powerful story that deals with the tough issues of bullying, family dysfunction, alcoholism, madness and war.

"...the characters are bold, the plot twists surprising, and the point - that we never fully know a person or his or her story - heartbreakingly clear...Skillfully written and emotionally charged."
