Description

Dare, almost 16, is a big, tough, street-wise kid, always in trouble at school and around the town of Crossing, Alberta. His 12-year-old brother, Ty, is just the opposite: quiet, studious, at the head of his class.

When their grandmother dies, Dare and Ty are faced with the prospect of going to a foster home - until Laura McConnell, a part-time teacher, invites them to her ranch.

If it weren't for Ty, Dare would be long goneà a desire that intensifies into white-hot rage as he clashes with Laura and faces the pain of his past.
