MY THOUGHTS: This wasn't the kind of book I thought it was. It's more about the mom. The boy is just a side thought. His father is killed and the last thing his dad told him, was to take care of his mom. He takes it literally. He starts rebelling and getting trouble. Mom talks to his teacher, to see if he can help. The teacher doesn't really want to get involved. Then a romance blooms between the mom and the teacher. I give this book a 3....
This book is for one of my reading challenges......
