"Steve Nugent is a character as distinctive and disturbing as Salinger’s Holden Caulfield." — BOOKLIST (starred review)
Steve Nugent is in Burnstone Grove, a facility for kids who are either addicts or have tried to commit suicide. But Steve doesn’t fit in either group, and he used to go to the gifted school. So why is he in Burnstone Grove? Keeping a journal, Steve tries to figure out who he is by examining who he was. Both heartbreaking and starkly humorous, this brutal story of escape and the desire for redemption is masterfully told by award-winning writer and film director Adam Rapp.
