In rehab instead of high school, 18-year-old Zach is recovering from alcoholism and a deeply painful childhood that he can't bear to remember. Supported by his therapist, and a loving, father-figure roommate, Zach gradually un-wraps the monster that he's hiding from, as he reluctantly explores his wildly fractured and unstable family. Filled with pain, poetry, and realism, this searing young adult novel is a School Library Journal Best Book of 2009.
