Description

Three years after his father's suicide, Jordan is a self–described zombie. With no friends and no interests, Jordan has made sure he is invisible and alone because it's easier to get by that way. But then salvation comes in the most unlikely form. It's gorgeous, and it's sexy–a 1976 Corvette! Drawn by this beautiful car and the doors it opens for him, Jordan realizes that maybe he can start living. But on the path to recovery, Jordan starts taking risky chances that mean he might just lose everything all over again.

In this forceful novel, Michael L. Printz Honor author Terry Trueman powerfully explores the fragile and resilient spirit of a boy desperate for a lifeline to hold on to.
