Synopsis: Suffering a series of dangerous accidents at the same time he develops reckless and irresistible urges to do irresponsible things, seventeen-year-old Luke wonders how he can end the destructive pattern into which he has fallen.

From School Library Journal: Grade 9 UpALuke's English teacher assigns the class a daily journal-writing project. So begins the day-to-day adventures of an athletic and socially active 17 year old. Luke's sarcastic tone colors his entries with teen "attitude." Despite his best efforts, persistent flashbacks hint at his past. Crossed-out entries on random pages intensify readers' interest in what he isn't saying. There are indications that something is wrong with his eyesight. He shares that he has had a number of slight car accidents and has spent some time recovering from surgery, but stifles the details. His parents' apprehension, particularly over his driving, spark his temper. Thrilled and stimulated by physical achievement, he increasingly pushes himself into more reckless and adventurous activities. Finally, a climb up a steep mountain results in an injury to his other eye. This accident, which may leave Luke totally blind, becomes the catalyst for the young man to confront his past. During his studied and cautious disclosure of events, the truth painfully emerges. Readers will be drawn in by the journal technique and empathize with Luke's personal battles. Koller's portrayal of a foolhardy teen who feels invincible and is naive about irreversible consequence is incredibly well drawn. The strength of this novel is Luke's appearance as an ordinary 17 year old, doing the usual high-energy teen stuff. His past seeps out surreptitiously, adding powerful impact to an already interesting life.AAlison Follos, North Country School, Lake Placid, NY
