Fourteen-year-old Rick Walker is alone, on the run, and desperate. Stowing away in the back of a pickup truck, he suddenly finds himself at a dead end in a surreal landscape of redrock spires and deep canyons called the Maze. In this heart-stopping adventure, master storyteller Will Hobbs brings readers a unique tale of identity, personal growth, and friendship.
