Author(s): Jennifer Hubbard
Ryan spends most of his time alone at the local waterfall because it's the only thing that makes him feel alive. He's 16, post-suicidal, and trying to figure out what to do with himself after a stint in a mental hospital. Then Nicki barges into his world.
*"Hubbard is outstandingly successful at capturing the frustration of not having the words, especially in a culture that does not encourage boys to express what Ryan is feeling." (starred review)
