Kidd is running from his past and his future. No mom, no dad, and there’s nothing for him at the group home but therapy. He doesn’t belong at the beach where he works either, unless he finds a reason to stay. Olivia is blond hair, blue eyes, rich dad. The prettiest girl in Cardiff. She’s hiding something from Kidd — but could they ever be together anyway? Devon is mean, mysterious, and driven by a death wish. A best friend and worst enemy. He followed Kidd all the way to the beach and he’s not leaving until he teaches him a few lessons about life. And Olivia.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Because the book is written in first person, the reader can’t know what Kidd doesn’t know, making the dramatic conclusion all the more surprising. Kidd’s journey to self-realization is tragic, but contains glimmers of hope.” Children’s Literature
