First things first¿I loved this book! I have worked in treatment centers of the mentally ill, the developmentally disabled and boys who are out of control. I have even spit on my meal to be sure that one of those boys in treatment didn¿t steal off my plate(necessary or your food disappears every time you take your eyes off the plate.) This book captured the pain and hurt you see in those kids eyes. Broken homes, drug and/or alcohol abuse, physical/emotional abuse, gang life, the list goes on and on and you can see the need for love and acceptance in each of their faces. This book broke my heart and yet it was life affirming at the same time. A bit of Stand By Me, a bit of Lord of the Flies, a bit of what every teenager goes through and a bit of life as we all know it. The story comes to life in your head so full of color that it is hard to believe that this is a debut novel for this author. It is beautifully written and so full of life. I can¿t wait to see what else David comes out with in the future. Since this is about teen boys in treatment for crimes, it has language and adult situations you would expect. I loved this book and would give it 5 stars, but that to me means that it is a must read for everyone and this one may not be for everyone. I personally loved this story and I hate to cry, I refuse to watch a movie if someone dies because I hate to cry that much. But I cried and cried, I laughed and my heart shattered during my journey through these pages. What an extraordinary book this one is. Relationships are what we have in this life that are truly ours, embrace those you care about today. This is a story that means more than just the words on the pages, it gives you things to think about. It makes you thankful for what you have in this life and it affirms what you hold most important. This is a book I will be keeping to read again and for my kids to read.

Very well written, interesting characters and story. I had to find out what happened but I did not enjoy the book, the story is too dark and tragic for my taste.

This Novel was certainly a page turner! The story line and setting brought you into the scene. I love it when an author can bring you to a different place like you are watching a movie. Very well done David Hilton, so glad I chose your novel.

This book draws you in from the very beginning. Very hard to put down once started. Some graphic violence, but very good reading. Held my attention the entire time. Very well written.

I've had few books that had me feeling such dramatic swings of emotion while reading. Couldn't put it down...

It has been a while since I have read a book that I really enjoyed. It wasn't sappy to be sappy and the charachters emotions and behaviors seemed real. I figured there would be some disturbing parts and of course there were. There were a couple of laugh out loud moments and there was a part at the end that basically made me cry. I would definitely recommend and certainly would read anoher of Hilton's books.
