Marcus has it all: charm, good looks, successful parents, endless opportunities and anything money can buy. Along with his best friend, Tom, and Tom's crush, Yasmin, he escapes to his parents' resort condo during a school trip to Whistler, B.C. And he can't refuse when drinking makes Yasmin determined to hook up with him instead of Tom. The three decide to ditch the rest of the group and ski out of bounds. And the thrill is extreme -- until Yasmin dies going over an unmarked cliff and Tom is left paraplegic. To Marcus's horror, the school decides to blame and expel Tom rather than face the power of Marcus's father and his lawyers. Can he deny his part in what happened? Or should he turn his back on his perfect life and face up to the consequences of his actions?

Awards

Commended - Best Books for Kids & Teens -- Canadian Children's Book Centre - 2017

"In spite of its brevity, few words on a page, and simple vocabulary, this book is aimed squarely at teens. Coarse language, sex, drinking, and a frank discussion of suicide are all part of this tale."

- Kirkus Reviews

"Quick read for reluctant readers!"

- Larissa Haynes, Educator NetGalley Reviewer
