Book Description
Gripping and suspenseful, this powerful, no-holds-barred novel by an exciting new talent goes deep inside a young boy's mind. Thirteen-year-old Robbie is locked in a room with nothing but a desk, a chair, a piece of paper, and a pencil. He s starving, but all they ll give him is water. He is sure he s in a nuthouse or a prison. Actually, he s at Great Oaks School, aka the End of the Line. Kept in solitary confinement, Robbie must earn points for food, a bed, even bathroom privileges. He must learn to listen carefully, to follow the rules, and to accept and admit the truth: he is a murderer. Robbie s first-person account of his struggles at the school at times horrifying, at times hilarious alternates with flashbacks to the events that led to his incarceration.
