To randy it seems impossible that short weeks ago he was happy, involved and going places. Now, with a less-than-brilliant new stepmother, a move to the East Coast, and a few crucial mistakes to his credit, he's trapped in a situation he can't escape. Jake and his gang of bullies have fingered him as an easy mark. Why? He has access to something they want. And they know how to make him get it.

Randy is angry at his father for cutting him off from everything back home. Still, he doesn't want to betray him by bowing to the pressures of a gang. When it seems there is nowhere to turn, help comes from an unexpected source. But Randy needs to face some hard truths about the present and his past before he's ready to except it.

Don Aker is a Fitzhenry and Whiteside author.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stranger at Bay The second book by this Nova Scotia writer is the story of a boy starting grade nine in a new school in a new province. His dad has been downsized, which is why they had to move. This is a great story for boys - or girls - who are interested in real-life kinds of stories that aren't all about dating, parties, horror or fantasy. Aker has made his characters come to life. The problems and situations they encounter are neither blown out of proportion nor non-existent. I would also read his other book, Of Things Not Seen. We should definitely stock Canadian books, about Canadian people, like this one.
