Eight years before Denny Colbert was born, his father was involved in a tragic accident that killed 22 children. Now Denny is 16, and all he wants is to be like other kids his age. But he isn't allowed to answer the telephone or have a driver's license, and his family is constantly moving from town to town - all because people can't forget what happened long ago.
When Denny defies his parents one afternoon and answers the telephone, he finds himself drawn into a plot for revenge which may prove deadly.

Robert Cormier is the best. Emotional and thoughtful the topics he writes about touch an older audience but are written for the coming of age young adult. Short story but stuck with me.
