Publisher's Summary

Jonathan Friesen delivers a nuanced, critically acclaimed debut with this affecting tale of fathers and sons. High-schooler Sam’s struggle with Tourette’s syndrome is made more difficult by Old Bill, his abusive stepfather, who kicks Sam out of the home following graduation. When Sam meets a friend of his dead father, however, he begins a journey toward understanding that might also help him accept who he is.

Critic Reviews
