Summary

After Diego lands himself on probation for fighting, he doesn’t trust his probation officer, Mr. Vidas. But as he begins to open up, Diego realizes that he needs Mr. Vidas’s help to get his anger under control. To do that, Diego will need to face the nightmares from his past head-on and confront the memories he’s been avoiding. Will anyone even believe him if he tells the truth about his stepfather? Award-winning author Alex Sanchez writes about a teen’s very real struggle to overcome his anger and take control of his life.

His best?

Any additional comments?

I have read a few of Sanchez's stories and I think this the best of them. A powerful undercurrent runs through the entire novel. Obviously something awful is involved, but Sanchez releases the tension only bit by bit, as the reader joins the psychologist Vidas's exploration of Diego's trauma. The hurt seems palpable at times, and the role of victim and survivor are vividly expressed through Diego's thoughts. Well worth the listen.
