Publisher Comments:

I Will Save You was Matt de la Peña’s fourth novel. He attended the University of the Pacific on a basketball scholarship and went on to earn a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing at San Diego State University. He lives in Brooklyn, New York, where he teaches creative writing. Look for Matt's other books, Ball Don’t Lie, Mexican WhiteBoy, We Were Here, and The Living, all available from Delacorte Press. You can visit him at mattdelapena.com.

Synopsis:

Kidd is spending his summer at the beach. He'd do anything to get away from his group home and the dark memories there of his past.

He's working as a caretaker at the campsite, and he'd be blind if he didn't notice Olivia. Blond hair, blue eyes, rich dad. The prettiest girl in Cardiff. He might even have a chance with her, too. Until Devon appears.

Kidd's best friend followed him all the way to the beach. And he's not leaving until he teaches him a few lessons about life. And Olivia.

Beverly B, January 1, 2015 (view all comments by Beverly B)
Matt de la Pena has given us another powerful memorable coming of age story with a male working class protagonist trying to fit into a white world of privilege. Matt de la Pena is a beautiful writer who seamlessly weaves in words of wisdom without even a hint of preachiness. Protagonist, Kidd, comes from a violent family that imploded and left him to grow up in the foster care system. After running away from his group home, he is determined to find his way in the world, and find a place where he fits in, can start a normal life, and come to peace with his history. But as determined as he is, and despite how hard he is working to build a good life for himself, Kidd does not truly believe those things are possible for him.
