  • About the Book
    Joel’s best friend, Tony, is a daredevil. It was Tony’s idea to make the long bike ride to
    the Starved Rock state park, and Tony’s idea to stop for a swim in the dangerous Vermillion
    River. So why does Joel feel so much guilt when tragedy strikes?
    The paperback features a beautiful new cover and introduction by Katherine Paterson,
    author of the Newbery Medal–winning book Bridge to Terabithia.

    "A powerful, soul-stirring novel told simply and well." —Booklist, ALA, Starred Review

    "Descriptions are vivid, characterization and dialogue natural, and the style taut but unforced. A powerful, moving book." —School Library Journal 

    "While there is death, there is also love, and Bauer's honest and gripping novel joins the ranks of such as Katherine Paterson's Bridge to Terabithia in its handling of these issues." —Publisher's Weekly
