Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Alex has heard lies all his life. His mother has rarely told him the truth. Instead, she filled his childhood with broken promises, neglect, and abuse. Confused and angry, Alex has found plenty of trouble in his life.Now on probation, he has just moved to his grandparents' home in a small Oregon town. If he can't stay out of trouble there, he will be sent to a "training camp" for delinquents. On his first day at the high school, he is not surprised to see plenty of unfriendly faces. But when a girl is unexpectedly kind to him, Alex wonders if he could begin to trust someone.


What the Critics Say

"This story isn't easy to read, yet its ultimately uplifting message is about not giving up, even if the life you get is not what you would have chosen. Authoritatively depicted, the stark beauty and small-town life of rural Oregon form a strong backdrop to a tale with the ring of truth." (Publishers Weekly)
