I heard the gunshot and I knew what had happened.
Even before I made it
downstairs to Dad's office,
I knew what he'd done.
How do you live your life after catastrophe hits your family? How do you go back to football practice or ask girls out on a date as if your life is regular? How can you talk to your friends about normal stuff when nothing is normal anymore and there's just nothing left to say?
Three years later Jordan is a self-described zombie. No real friends, no interests, nothing. He feels like a nonperson -- invisible and alone. But then salvation comes, in the most unlikely form. It's gorgeous, it's beautiful, it's sexy. It's a 1976 Corvette!
Slowly, drawn by this beautiful car and the doors it opens for him, Jordan realizes that maybe, just maybe, he can start living again. But the real question is: Does he want to?
Terry Trueman's new book is a powerful exploration of the spirit, both fragile and resilient, of a boy desperate for a lifeline to hold on to.
