If there's one person Jacob is never going to be like, it's his alcoholic father. But Jacob is brought face-to-face with his own addictions when his father ends up in the hospital. Certain that he can easily overcome his drug and alcohol abuse, Jacob discovers just how powerful
dependency can be. A terrible tragedy takes Jacob to the breaking point where he will have to decide, once and for all, whether or not he is going to go through life wasted.

Commended - Best Books for Kids & Teens -- Canadian Children's Book Centre - 2011

"What about the legality -- and morality -- of growing marijuana for sale? Should a murder go unpunished? One hopes readers will be inspired to discuss these issues, especially in the context of the well-realized bleakness of Jacobs life and those of his friends."

- Michael Cart Booklist Online (US)

BRENT SHERRARD and his wife Valerie live in Miramachi, New Brunswick.
