About the Book

I shouldn't have come back to Miami . . . I've been escaping cops' notice for a year now. I'm no longer Michael Daye, high school athlete with a promising future. Now I look like someone whit no future.

When Michael saw a chance to leave town with a traveling carnival a year ago, he took it. Back then, his home life was spinning violently out of control. The carnival, with its "no questions asked" policy, seemed like a welcome escape. But now Michael's job has brought him back to Miami, where his mother is on trial for murder, making him wonder how much longer he can hide from his past . . . and his future.

Critical Praise

“A heartrending, unforgettable book.” — School Library Journal

“An absorbing read. Readers will appreciate seeing a tough topic taken beyond melodrama.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“A fast–paced, readable mystery that is rooted in the psychology of battered–spouse syndrome and its impact on the entire family.” — ALA Booklist

“The dialogue crackles with danger and attitude; the plot contains enough twists and revelations to keep readers riveted.” — The Horn Book

“Arresting. As she did in Breathing Underwater, Flinn does a masterful job of exploring domestic violence.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
