MY CHEMICAL MOUNTAIN.
New York: Delacorte, (2013). SIGNED first edition - Winner of the Delacorte Press Prize for a First YA Novel. The Horn Book review states that this book "captures both the disheartening helplessness of the situation and the boys' reckless resistance: 'We cross a landfill on our way to school. We swim in creek water that smells like nail polish remover . . . We are not fools. We are brave and brilliant.' There is power and hope in that kind of statement, and Jason's coming-of-age tale, though dark, is full of both. INSCRIBED on the first page. 185 pp.
