Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The story of one boy and his journey to find himself.

When it happened, Miguel was sent to Juvi. The judge gave him a year in a group home—said he had to write in a journal so some counselor could try to figure out how he thinks. The judge had no idea that he actually did Miguel a favor. Ever since it happened, his mom cant even look at him in the face. Any home besides his would be a better place to live.

But Miguel didnt bet on meeting Rondell or Mong or on any of what happened after they broke out. He only thought about Mexico and getting to the border to where he could start over. Forget his mom. Forget his brother. Forget himself.

Life usually doesnt work out how you think it will, though. And most of the time, running away is the quickest path right back to what youre running from.

From the Hardcover edition.
