Description

Tuck navigates new love, past trauma and standing up for what's right in this novel in verse.

Grace has caught my eye
I stare and stare
at this girl I’ve missed
since we were five

Abuse at the hands of his mother's boyfriend has left fifteen-year-old Tuck broken and untrusting. But then he falls hard for his childhood friend Grace and starts to imagine a life where he is happy. At the fast-food restaurant where he works, Tuck is asked to explore starting up a union. His new sense of purpose, combined with his growing love for Grace, helps Tuck come to terms with his pain and find the strength to begin the healing process.
