This is a compelling coming of age story about acceptance and fear. It is wrapped in a fascinating adventure/thriller/mystery. All these elements are shaking mightily in this novel.

Allan Stratton delivers an explosive thriller ripped straight from today’s headlines. He writes the story with a smart and gutsy narrator at the helm. This is a compelling and relevant novel which will keep readers riveted and guessing at the truth until the very last page.
I just love coming of age stories. They capture the real feel of what it means to be young and vulnerable, with all of its angst.
I found that the scariest part of this story is that it is believable and within the realm of possibility. This is something that we all have to worry about.
What a great story!
