When a new friend tells him that "the squeaky wheel gets the grease," Mark Baker realizes that unless he finds the courage to confront his life, things will probably get worse.

Mark's world has been turned upside down by the split between his parents. He's been forced to leave his old neighborhood and his old friends. Now he's living with his mother in a new apartment in a new town. Mark still longs to be back in his old school, once again to ride his bike, to go on living in the house where he grew up.

But it's the loss of his father that worries Mark most of all. The man he depended on seeing every day is disappearing from his life.

This deeply felt novel explores the angry territory of a child trapped in a war between parents he truly loves. Does Mark have any rights at all? And how can he find a road past feuding parents so he can get on with his life?

With understanding, compassion, and surprising humor, Robert Kimmel Smith has created a story that gives us a fresh look at the most disturbing aspects of divorce.
