Product Description

Review

" A morality play as painful and rage-inducing as a personal
betrayal." - Chris Lynch
" [Examines] at a high-school level the phenomenon of betrayal
in the aid of self-preservation. What' s particularly interesting is
that Gantos doesn' t let his victims off the hook either."
- "The Bulletin of the Center for Children' s Books"
" Gantos is explicit when demonstrating how a climate of fear
and suspicion can be concocted in a community, and how
insecure young people - gay, straight - can be tormented by it."
- "Kirkus Reviews"""
" A tightly written first-person novel tells how 16-year-old
Walker knows about the romance of two of his female
classmates. While he understands the evil of intolerance - in
this case homophobia in a rural community - he feels helpless,
and tragedy ensues." - "The New York Times Book Review"
