"Fast-paced...narration style makes it easier to cover longer amounts of time in a shorter space. Recommended." (CM Magazine 2007-04-01)
"Maintains the perfect balance of good story, age-appropriate conflict, good writing [with] a controlled vocabulary and style." (Resource Links 2007-06-01)
"A powerful book...[that will] meet some important needs." (Puget Sound Council for the Review of Children's Books 2008-11-01)
"A great coming of age novel...It speaks volumes to teens about the destructiveness of drug use, anger, and idleness, while directly showing that there are always consequences for our actions. And, while the novel has wonderful themes for exploration, it also has an extremely engaging format. McClintock did a superb job creating the voice for Quentin, who narrates his story just like teenagers speak today...[It's] a wonderful format to engross the reader, and I absolutely love it. There is just enough mystery to peak interest, while not overwhelming or confusing the reader. I recommend this for all age groups, but especially reluctant readers. I strongly believe that this novel, along with other Orca Soundings books, will push reluctant readers to progressively read more, and build their way to higher reading levels."

From the Back Cover
The guy died. I'm not surprised. I'm relieved. Quentin and JD have been friends forever. Hanging out together, Quentin learns JD has a gun, and when they are caught in a robbery, JD uses the gun-with deadly results. Trying to cover up the crime and get away with it, Quentin gets in even deeper than he expected and learns that the only person he can trust is himself. Especially when his freedom-and his future-is at stake.See all Product Description
