Description

A funny friendship turns serious in this haunting book about secrets, lies, and what it means to be a true friend.

Joey Banks is a walking adventure. He's funny, daring, mischievous--and frequently in trouble. Or he would be if anyone found out about half the stuff he's done. Luckily, Rusty Cooper knows how to keep a secret. Joey is the best friend Rusty's ever had, and he's not going to mess with that. But then comes a secret that is at once too terrible to tell and too terrible to keep. A secret so big it threatens to eat them alive. What would a true friend do now?

Wendelin Van Draanen has written a richly layered book that offers a thought-provoking look at the boundaries of friendship and what it really means to be true.

"Triumph and tragedy mix in a compelling country tale of boys being boys." --Kirkus Reviews

"A poignant, thought-provoking novel that will strike a chord with young readers hooked by the boyish antics of the early chapters, later to be emotionally drawn to the honest portrayal of characters struggling with the consequences that follow every action." --Midwest Book Review
