Description

Short-listed for the 2005 Snow Willow Award and for the 2006 Manitoba Young Readers’ Choice Award
Cole Fennety doesn’t know it, but he is about to have the strangest summer of his life. His little sister, Jessie, is driving him crazy, his mother is too wrapped up in the world of daytime soaps to intervene, and his best friend, Wayne, is out of control. Worst of all, his boss, Sam Kerrigan, is the meanest man in town. But beneath Sam’s crusty exterior lies a kind heart – as well as a terrible secret that forces Cole to face questions to which there are no easy answers.
