An independent original in every way, young Joe leaves homeleaving behind his very young mother and brutal stepfather. He moves in with his grandfather, and becomes involved with a rich judge and his beautiful daughter. He also becomes involved with the law and faces the dilemma of telling the truth in a no-win situation or lying and buying his way into the easy life. An old scandal and a startling climax change his life forever. With expert touches of a Maine background, the author succeeds in telling a fast-paced story with a fascinating protagonist and a wealth of ideas on individuality, compromise, and the human condition. By the author of Almost Famous , this is highly recommended for all fiction collections, including YA. R.H. Donahugh, Youngstown & Mahoning Cty. P.L., Ohio
