With boundless empathy and psychological precision, the award-winning author of Grief Is the Thing with Feathers and Lanny delivers a breathtaking vignette of a troubled young boy caught between the ghosts of his past and the enormous questions about his future.

This is the story of a few strange hours in the life of a troubled teenage boy.

You mustn’t do that to yourself Shy. You mustn’t hurt yourself like that.

He is wandering into the night listening to the voices in his head: his teachers, his parents, the people he has hurt and the people who are trying to love him.

Got your special meds, nutcase?

He is escaping Last Chance, a home for ‘very disturbed young men’, and walking into the haunted space between his night terrors, his past and the heavy question of his future.
