Kindness for Weakness

"In the spirit of [Walter Dean Myers's] Monster meeting The Catcher in the Rye, Goodman's masterful story will remain with the reader long after the last page, echoing the raw truth that perhaps a real man is one who is both brave and scared." -Ruta Sepetys, author of Between Shades of Gray

In an environment where kindness equals weakness, how do those who care survive?

Shawn Goodman will capture your heart with this gritty, honest, and moving story about a boy struggling to learn about friendship, brotherhood, and manhood in a society where violence is the answer to every problem.
