Description

Shaw Sebring is sixteen and trying desperately to understand and accept his father's recent suicide. Moving with his mother halfway across the county in an effort to distance themselves from the awful truth, Shaw lands in a new school and finds that the ghost of his father, a best-selling author, has followed him. Determined that he will not follow in his father's footsteps Shaw tries to chart his own course, until circumstances force him to accept that where--and who--we come from have an impact on what we become.

Editorial Reviews

"This book portrays true, if sometimes raw, emotions... Students who are forced to confront loss and grieving will find comfort in the fact that they are not alone."

— School Library Journal

"This novel is an exceptionally good choice for both male and female reluctant readers. Highly recommended."

— Canadian Book Review Annual

“The clear theme of the pain of prejudice for the victims, be it on the basis of race or sexual orientation, will appeal to today’s activist teens. It’s interesting to note that these themes could not have been addressed so directly only a few short years ago. Highly Recommended.”

— CM Magazine

"Pick it up - you'll be glad that you did!"
