Principal Giraldi has given Pip an ultimatum: Either he stops skipping classes and begins seeing a counselor after school, or he's expelled. But what really scares Pip is the thought that Giraldi might call his father. His father is what really scares Pip.
From an outstanding new author comes this heartrending story of a sixteen-year-old boy on the edge. Pip has been killing his time by getting high-trying to avoid thinking about his family life, trying not to notice that his younger brother isn't the same sweet, happy kid he used to be. Now Pip's being forced to think. Will he follow his father's destructive path, or will he invent his own future, one that might not include addiction and cruelty?
