Publisher Comments:

Josh Mendel has a secret. Unfortunately, everyone knows what it is.

   Five years ago, Joshs life changed. Drastically. And everyone in his school, his town—seems like the world—thinks they understand. But they dont—they cant. And now, about to graduate from high school, Josh is still trying to sort through the pieces. First theres Rachel, the girl he thought hed lost years ago. Shes back, and shes determined to be part of his life, whether he wants her there or not.Then there are college decisions to make, and the toughest baseball game of his life coming up, and a coach who wont stop pushing Josh all the way to the brink. And then theres Eve. Her return brings with it all the memories of Joshs past. Its time for Josh to face the truth about what happened.

   If only he knew what the truth was . . .

Synopsis:

In his follow-up to "The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl," Lyga delivers a disturbing, ripped-from-the-headlines novel about a seventh-grade boy who has a very adult relationship with his female teacher.

Reader Eternal, November 11, 2011 (view all comments by Reader Eternal)
This book is absolutely stunning. Lyga handles a sensitive, controversial subject with an uncommonly deft touch. It's brave, unflinching, gut-wrenching, terrifying and luminous. A wonderfully emotional and unusual read. Even the most skeptical of readers will find it difficult to remain unmoved.
