In this fearless portrayal of a boy on the edge, highly
acclaimed Printz Honor–author A. S. King explores the desperate reality of a
former child “star” struggling to break free of his anger.
Gerald Faust started feeling angry even before his mother invited
a reality television crew into his five-year-old life. Twelve years later, he’s
still haunted by his rage-filled youth—which the entire world got to watch from
every imaginable angle—and his anger issues have resulted in violent outbursts,
zero friends, and clueless adults dumping him in the special education room at
school. No one cares that Gerald has tried to learn to control himself; they’re
all just waiting for him to snap. And he’s starting to feel dangerously close
to doing just that—until he chooses to create possibilities for himself that he
never knew he deserved. Download and start listening now!
