    4. Brilliant read! The book follows 15 year old Jonathan. Due to the death of his stepfather, has to move with his mom to his Uncle's house. His uncle is not well, mentally unstable. An unlikely source of help, a scary gang at school. A dare that will change and challenge Jonathan. Light at the end of the tunnel for all. This book moved me beyond words.
