Gr 8 Up–When Seth’s mother is murdered and the police don’t show any interest in finding the killer, he takes the job upon himself to find the killer. The most compelling aspect of the book was Seth. His dad left him and his mom and then his mom is murdered, and he goes and tries to find his mother’s killer. This book is really powerful. He also isn’t rich, and during this hard part of his life, he finds a girl who he falls in love with, which gives him hope. It is an amazingly powerful story and I really recommend it.—Tyler M., 14
