From the Publisher
"Author Lesley Choyce has filled his latest book with quirky yet complex characters, and his adept portrayal of one teen's inner struggles - struggles that are not fuelled by extreme poverty, abuse, or neglect or any other external provocations - is at once profound and utterly realistic. Carson's story of subtle growth and quiet transformation will resonate with a wide range off readers. It is a beautifully honest book tinged with sadness, but ultimately filled with optimism and hope."
-- Atlantic Books Today (Halifax)
"Each character in Lesley Choyce's novel is clearly profiled and dons a prevalent issue facing today's teens. The reader is immediately drawn into the story with Carson's powerful essay depicting who he is and how he thinks. In first person, the story is both intriguing and revealing. The language is rough and the sex scene is quite sensationalized for two sixteen year olds. Otherwise, this paperback will be a favorite among young adults and earns itself a 5 rating."
