Description
A teen runs away from his broken life and invents a new one in this &;absorbing and satisfying&; (Booklist) adventure from Printz Honor winner and National Book Award finalist Chris Lynch.Crystal City called for him, and Kevin answered. And why wouldn&;t he? His relationship with his father is broken&;as is his arm. With barely anyone to miss him or care if he&;s gone, it seemed like the perfect time for Kevin to run away to his estranged uncle and create an entirely new identity. New name. New attitude. New friends. Maybe even a new girl. From the first moment of adventure, Kevin&;s life takes a turn for the exciting. Making friends seems easy with his new persona, especially when a group of homeless beach bums instantly includes him in their crew. But do they like the real Kevin, or the guy he&;s pretending to be? And will this new lifestyle help Kevin escape from the misery of his former life&;or will it drag him right back into the reasons he left home?
