About this title

Synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Stetson hasn't seen his mother in years and tries to keep a good distance from his alcoholic father, but when his father introduces him to a sister who recently appeared at their home, Stetson finds himself being concerned with his new, rebellious sibling.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 & Up--Stetson is living a life on the edge. He places bets at school in order to buy food because his alcoholic father spends all of his money at the local bar. His mother has been gone for years. The teen is on the verge of being suspended from school. Then he arrives home one day to find a 14-year-old inside, explaining that she has nowhere else to go because their mother has just died. It turns out that his mother was pregnant when she left, and that he has a sister. Stetson must now teach her how to fend for herself in a trailer with a verbally abusive, often-absent father. Rottman tackles many social issues from the perspective of a socially outcast 17-year-old who has raised himself and has only one real friend. The writing can be repetitive, but this may be a consequence of the narrator's humdrum attitude toward life. The story is told mainly through dialogue, and readers may sometimes find themselves confused about who is speaking. Also, the author repeats that Stetson is an artist, though there is little evidence of this. Rottman leaves readers with the hope that her protagonist will be able to succeed on his own but also with the nagging feeling that he just may psych himself out of his success. Nevertheless, teens will be cheering him on to the end.
