After "it" happens, Miguel is sent to juvenile hall for a year. The judge had no idea he was doing Miguel a favor. Ever since "it" happened, his mother can''t even look at him. "Any" home besides his would be a better place to live.
From the Publisher:
The story of one boy and his journey to find himself.

When it happened, Miguel was sent to Juvi. The judge gave him a year in a group home—said he had to write in a journal so some counselor could try to figure out how he thinks. The judge had no idea that he actually did Miguel a favor. Ever since it happened, his mom can’t even look at him in the face. Any home besides his would be a better place to live.

But Miguel didn’t bet on meeting Rondell or Mong or on any of what happened after they broke out. He only thought about Mexico and getting to the border to where he could start over. Forget his mom. Forget his brother. Forget himself.

Life usually doesn’t work out how you think it will, though. And most of the time, running away is the quickest path right back to what you’re running from.

From the Hardcover edition.
Written in a very personal journal format, this intense young adult novel follows the lives of Miguel and his friends, Rondell and Mong, as they run away from juvie, hoping to start new lives in Mexico. Each is dealing with something different, but Miguel is tortured by what he did to be banished from home and put in juvenile detention. Embittered and cynical, will he be able to find his way back to a normal life, ever?
