This is one book that I'll be looking forward to the next one. It literally had me wanting more!
The book is about a 17 year old boy, Gavin, that was given up by his grandparents after his parents died in a house fire (supposedly). His adoptive mother died while protecting him in a robbery and his adoptive father became violent and a drunk. Jet, his adoptive father, was very abusive to him and took all of his anger out on him. In their last real fight, Jet let something slip. Gavin decided it was time for research. He located his maternal grandparents! He hopped a bus to DC from Nevada to find them. On his journey he was attacked by two individuals and it didn't make since to him at all of what they wanted. Gavin didn't have any friends, loved photography and was determined to find a better life somewhere else. It was 2-3 weeks before his 18th Birthday. He was scared that his grandparents would not want him at all, but thought it was better than staying in Nevada where he had no friends and his family hated him, or at least what family he had known most of his life.
When Gavin get's to DC, he takes a cab to his grandparents place. He learns of a special trait that he never knew he had and why he had always been drawn to photography.
Arthur J. Gonzalez has put this book together so perfectly that it keeps you on the edge of your seat. You will NOT be able to put this book down at all. The whole book is just incredible.
I suggest you read the first 10 chapters that are FREE and you'll be wanting to buy this book to read the rest. It's an incredible read with lots of history involved.
