Description

Last Sam's Cage is the remarkable story of fifteen-year-old Eddie Slater. Already labeled a young offender, Eddie runs away from an abusive stepfather and takes up residence at the Calgary Zoo. There he meets Jack, a middle-aged man who has been coming to the zoo's playground every day for thirty-two years to watch the children. Convinced that Jack is either a pervert of just plain weird, Eddie follows him home one day, and eventually breaks into his house to see what he can find. He discovers more than he bargained for?and that discovery changes both Eddie and Jack for good.
Praise for Last Sam's Cage:

"...a moving portrait of a young man's journey from violence and isolation to a life that includes friendship and trust. We find ourselves rooting for him all the way." - Canadian Children's Book News
"...this hard-hitting book is a guaranteed eye-opener for anyone who has never called a discarded cardboard box home." - The Globe and Mail
