Publisher Comments:

The teasing. The shoving. The name-calling. It’s what overweight Moo Nelson calls “the rain.” It’s what he has to deal with every day of his life. There’s no umbrella big enough to keep the other kids’ cruelty from pouring down on him. But everything is different on the bridge. Moo’s bridge. High above the traffic, it’s the only place Moo can watch the world go by and be in peace. Until the night Moo witnesses a car chase. And a murder. Suddenly, everyone — gangsters, policemen, and even the school bullies — want something from Moo. They want the truth — or some version of it. Now Moo must decide between truth and lies, loyalty and loneliness, justice and retribution. And he must do it soon...In a bold, unforgettable voice, Kevin Brooks tells a story of pain and discovery that will resonate with young adult readers everywhere.

Synopsis:

From the acclaimed author of MARTYN PIG and LUCAS comes another compelling, edgy ,YA thriller about love, loss, and life.

Moo Nelson likes to be alone. Overweight and shy, Moo is constantly mocked and bullied by his cruel classmates. He's happiest spending time on a secluded bridge above the highway, watching the cars go by. One day, from his special spot, Moo witnesses a crime that changes his life forever. He sees a car chase and a murder--and suddenly Moo's a celebrity of sorts. The police, the lawyers, and even the bullies are now really interested in Moo. But so is one shady character who seems intent on tracking Moo down. Now all Moo has to do is find out the truth behind the crime...before it's too late.
