Erin Thomas I finished reading this a few days ago, and the characters and their stories are still with me. Beautifully written and moving, with a powerful and disturbing voice.

The narrator is a young boy in a group home for a crime that he doesn't reveal until near the end of the book. He runs away, along with two of the other boys who live there. The incredible thing about the book is the inward journey.

I read this book based on Kevin Craig's review and, like Kevin, enjoyed seeing the narrator's walls slowly come down. I'll be reading this one again, and looking for more by this author.
