Nick is one of the chosen few at his high school: intelligent, popular, wealthy. People think his life is pretty easy. Except for one thing. Nick has never told anyone about his father’s violent temper.

When Nick meets Caitlin, he thinks that she is the answer to all his problems. Caitlin is everything Nick has ever wanted–beautiful, talented, and in love with him. But then it all changes. And Nick must face the fact that he’s gotten more from his gather than green eyes and money.

In a harrowing journey of self-recovery, Nick learns the truth about himself and that the phrase “like father, like son” can carry terrifying possibilities.

    " Ehh.....it was okay.....I mean, at the beginning the main character seemed really nice by his stories, but then he just scared me of the things he did...but the plot was nice and stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dina | 5/17/2011

    " Chilling story from the point of view of a boy who abuses his girlfriend. Eye-opening, frightening, but ultimately cathartic because he comes to realize just how horrible he's become and reaches out for help. "
