Fourteen-year-old Michael (Digger) Griswald doesn't think he has anything left to lose. He lost his freedom when he pulled a prank that left a little boy dead. He lost his best friends when he involved them in his prank. And he lost his childhood when he set foot in Cliffside Youth Detention Center.
But Digger still has a family. He has a mom and two younger siblings who need protection from his abusive father. To save them, Digger is willing to break free — to break laws — to find his way home. Yet it's what he finds out about himself along the way that will change his life forever.
This powerful, well-written novel is about renewing hope when all seems lost.
