Thirteen-year-old Declan lives only for revenge. His mother, father and sister were all killed on the streets of Belfast, and Declan will stop at nothing to settle the score. When he is torn away from his native soil and sent to live with relatives in Canada, he is disgusted by their efforts to welcome him into their lives, and determined to make them regret their hospitality. Can he devise a plan to return to Ireland and rejoin his cause? Or will the strange beauty of his new life and surroundings weaken his resolve?

From the Publisher:
Forcibly deported to Canada because of his terrorist activities in Northern Ireland, thirteen-year-old Declan must choose between his revolutionary past and a new life with his Canadian relatives.Forcibly deported to Canada because of his terrorist activities in Northern Ireland, thirteen-year-old Declan must choose between his revolutionary past and a new life with his Canadian relatives.
Annotation:
This novel explores the life of a young boy who has grown up amid the violence of Northern Ireland. His father was been shot dead years ago, and now Declan is devastated when his mother and sister are killed in a car-bombing incident. In retaliation, he joins a gang called the "Holy Terrors"--a sort of training ground for the IRA. Captured by the authorities, Declan is sent to live with his uncle and aunt in Canada. Still wanting revenge, he plots to escape and return to Northern Ireland.
