Synopsis

Two people are dead after a botched burglary, and 16-year-old Jim is on the lam. All he ever wanted was to get out of town, to escape the sickening memories: beatings from his mad, tyrannical father; the spectre of his mother passed out drunk on the living room couch; the wrenching, crushing suicide of his sister -- and the unimaginable truths he discovers afterward in her journal. But Jim's demons are within him as well as outside; at this moment he has to face his violent past and make the only important decision -- to run away, or to stay and pursue the one thing he's been missing his whole life.

Dan Marshall, whose own recovery from alcoholism came before he was 16 years old, offers in this debut novel a startling reminder of the terrible discoveries -- and confounding joys -- of new adulthood.
