Joel’s best friend, Tony, is a daredevil. It was Tony’s idea to make the long bike ride to
the Starved Rock state park, and Tony’s idea to stop for a swim in the dangerous Vermillion
River. So why does Joel feel so much guilt when tragedy strikes?
The paperback features a beautiful new cover and introduction by Katherine Paterson,
author of the Newbery Medal–winning book Bridge to Terabithia.
