Publisher's Summary

Still haunted by early memories of growing up in an abusive family, 17-year-old Moon can't separate himself from his past. Twelve-year-old Harper comes from a world full of love and support. Despite their differences, they become the best of friends. Just prior to World War II, they spend the summer in the wilds of Washington State, with reclusive storekeeper and mountaineer, Olinger.

But when winter comes, a blustery snowstorm hits, and Moon is missing. Risking his own life, Harper searches frantically for his friend. But what he finds is Olinger, dead, in a snowbank--and Moon is standing over him! Their friendship is put to the ultimate test as Harper struggles with what he believes to be the truth and the serious evidence stacking up against Moon.

Author and narrator Raymond Royal Ross masterfully reveals the scariest part of growing up--confronting the unknown. Dealing with the tough issues of child abuse, animal abuse, murder and suicide, Ross keeps you entralled throughout this suspenseful story.

What the Critics Say

"Issues of child abuse and lingering wartime stress are broached without dominating the story. This is an excellent choice for book discussions because it presents so many opportunities for students to wonder what they might do in Harper or Moon's stead." (School Library Journal)
"Vivid storytelling, a rock-solid sense of time and place, memorable, splendidly realized characters: likely to be read in one sitting, under covers by flashlight if necessary." (Kirkus Reviews)
