The cop pulled something out of his pocket.
"You recognize this, Josh?"

I stared at it. It couldn't be.

Andrew looked at it too. After a moment he said, "That looks like the fish club Dad gave you."

"Those are your initials, aren't they, Josh?" the woman cop said.

I nodded.

"It's what Scott was hit with. We have it down at the police station, Josh. Besides your initials, it has your fingerprints on it."


Josh had been living in a group home after being ratted out by Scott, his one-time best friend. Now he has moved in with his brother and overbearing sister-in-law and has been sent to a class designed to teach him to deal with his anger. When an old enemy continues to push his buttons and Scott appears to be up to his old tricks, Josh struggles to control his temper. Framed for a crime he didn't commit, it will take all of his new-found strength to keep his cool—and his freedom.

"Quick plot development. The protagonist is well developed; it is easy to identify with Josh's frustrations and his growth."
Resource Links - February 1, 2006
"What a fabulous book!...If you bring one book to one boy this year, this would be an excellent choice! (Girls and adults will like it too!)"
CM Magazine - February 1, 2006
“A swift moving plot and language designed for a 2.1 reading level make this a quick, easy, and engrossing read. Josh comes to life as a complex character, struggling with his past hardships, present conflicts and uncertain future...Recommended.”
Hip Librarian's Book Blog - November 1, 2005
“Action and character development are nicely balanced in this well-paced novel about a kid in trouble who is still worth saving.”
