shortDescription

In this fearless portrayal of a boy on the edge, highly acclaimed Printz Honor author A. S. King explores the desperate reality of a former child "star" struggling to break free of his anger.

Gerald Faust knows exactly when he started feeling angry: the day his mother invited a reality TV crew into his five-year-old life. Twelve years later, he is still haunted by his rage-filled youth—which the entire world got to watch from every imaginable angle—and his anger issues have resulted in violent outbursts, zero friends, and clueless adults dumping him in the special education room at school. No one cares that Gerald has tried to learn to control himself; they're all just waiting for him to snap. And he's starting to feel dangerously close to doing just that—until he chooses to create possibilities for himself that he never knew he deserved.
