Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Benito's father, Xavier, returns from Iraq after more than a year suffering from PTSD--post-traumatic stress disorder--and yells constantly. He causes such a scene at a school function that Benny is embarrased to go back to Southside High. Benny can't handle seeing his dad so crazy, so he decides to run away. Will Benny find a new life, or will he learn how to deal with his dad--through good times and bad?

Synopsis:

When his dad returns from Iraq suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, he causes an embarrassing scene at a school function that makes Benito decide to run away.
