An urban novel with the power and intensity of Walter Dean Myers's books

Sean is Justin's best friend - or at least Justin thought he was. But lately Sean has been acting differently. He's been telling lies, getting into trouble at school, hanging out with a tougher crowd, even getting into fights. When Justin finally discovers that Sean's been secretly going to visit his father in prison and is dealing with the shame of that, Justin wants to do something to help before his friend spirals further out of control. But will trying to save Sean jeopardize their friendship? Should Justin risk losing his best friend in order to save him?

"Its voice - Justin's first-person vernacular - is infectiously readable, and its characters are sympathetically and memorably realized." - Booklist

"A story you won't forget." - Coe Booth, author of the critically acclaimed Tyrell, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults
