In a sleepy New England town, Andrew Peters is born into an abusive family. As he grows older, he seems to be on the right track, using writing as his outlet—but his best friend Whitey is always pulling him in the opposite direction.

Editorial Reviews

"Andrew is an ex-con, a brooding loner whose mere appearance is intimidating. But behind that façade, he is actually an okay guy. Though he let his friend, Whitey, talk him into making questionable decisions as a young man, like doing drugs and robbing a convenience store (for which he was incarcerated), Andrew is a thinker, a writer, and a sensitive person who has come a long way from the abusive family in which he grew up. When he finds out that he has a sixteen-year-old daughter, Andrew is resolved to be a better man than his father was and to be a supportive father to Julie. Unfortunately, Whitey has not changed, and when he attempts to rob the same store he and Andrew hit all those years ago, Andrew tries to stop him. Regrettably, while Andrew tries to get control of Whitey’s gun, the shopkeeper panics and kills Andrew. Although this graphic novel is quite short, it is a tragic tale that will stay with readers. The dark and moody illustrations move back and forth in time to paint the portrait of a lonely guy who has had more bad luck than good. For the reluctant reader who wants a quick read with heavy emotional impact, this will do the job well. —Jennifer M. Miskec, VOYA
