Zach is eighteen, bright, and articulate. He's also an alcoholic, in rehab instead of high school, but he doesn't remember how he got there. What's up with that?
In rehab instead of high school, 18-year-old Zach is recovering from alcoholism and a deeply painful childhood that he can't bear to remember. Supported by his therapist, and a loving, father-figure roommate, Zach gradually un-wraps the monster that he's hiding from, as he reluctantly explores his wildly fractured and unstable family. Filled with pain, poetry, and realism, this searing young adult novel is a School Library Journal Best Book of 2009.
