The Roman and the Runaway, a short free book on Kindle, is about an adolescent who because of causing trouble in his home and doing poorly in school is sent to boarding school. The main character, Luke, is a good boy who really wants to please his family, his peers, and his teachers.
Although the first half of the book about Luke's new school was uneventful , the second part where he meets a runaway girl becomes interesting.
