Summary- What would you do if you had one chance to kill the man who raped your twelve-year-old sister?
No judge. No jury. No witnesses.
Seventeen-year-old child prodigy, Garrett Anthony has to answer that question. As he holds a gun to the head of his sister's rapist. he flashes ack to his traumatic past: five-year-old in a foster home, seven-year-old stealing food to survive, and sixteen-year-old visiting his black father in prison for the first time.
After years of fighting to secure a stable life for him and his half-sister, he finally has a scholarship to a prestigious Washington DC private school and the love of a Virginia senator's daughter. But this newfound and tenuous happiness begins to unravel once he reveals the family secret which is the catalyst to the painful decision he must make. Can he take the life of someone else and continue to live with himself?
My Review- AAAMAZZZINGGG! I seriously 100% love this book. The love that Garrett has for his little sister is unbelieveable. I couldn't stop reading this book. It is incredible. I wanted to know what happened next, the entire time. This has probably become one of my new favorite books. I can't say enough good things. LOVE IT! Highly recommended.
