Description

"Suspenseful and introspective..." --Publishers Weekly, starred

"[STARRED REVIEW!] Key has crafted another powerful, riveting coming-of-age tale . . . Foster's first-person voice is richly authentic as he gradually acquires the wisdom that will eventually lead him to a believable though heart-wrenching resolution to some of the crushing conflicts in his life. Confrontations between Dax and Gary are vivid and violent enough to disturb some readers, the violence expertly serving to define yet distinguish their characters. Deeply moving and fast-paced, this life-affirming effort is a worthy addition to the bookshelves of sturdy readers." --Kirkus Reviews

"Simultaneously poignant and suspenseful, the story will keep readers on the edge of their seats." --School Library Journal, starred review

"An original and satisfying coming-of-age tale." --Horn Book

"Written in the tradition of classics such as Old Yeller and Shiloh but with a decidedly contemporary setting and tone, this will appeal to a broad range of readers." --BCCB
