Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Irreverent, foulmouthed seventeen-year-old Cricket is the oldest ward in a Catholic boys home in Maine—and his life sucks. With prospects for the future that range from professional fighter to professional drug dealer, he seems doomed to a life of “criminal rapscallinity.” In fact, things look so bleak that Cricket cant help but wonder if his best option is one final cliff dive into the great unknown. But then Wynona Bidaban steps into his world, and Cricket slowly realizes that maybe, just maybe, life doesnt totally suck.

Synopsis:

In this emotionally powerful, funny debut, Cricket Cherpin needs to figure out what to do with his life before he turns eighteen. But life sucks—so why not just give up?
