Criminal activity, a forbidden girlfriend, a joyride—they could spell disaster for 16-year-old Kilian Barker. Then he accidentally meets Harry Goddard, a World War II veteran, living in a nursing home. What can some ancient dude teach a streetwise foster kid? Not much, according to Kilian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read! This book was recommended to me by a friend and I was not disappointed. In Kilian, Gordon has captured the essence of a turbulent teenage boy. The reader cheers for him, shakes her head at him, and in the end is struck by his perseverance and kindness. I highly recommend this book.
