This is a story of triumph over adversity. With its focus on the seldom discussed topic of child-on-child sexual abuse, the plot of this ground-breaking new novel revolves around the life of a thirteen-year-old boy named Will who, with his parents, lives a pleasant and successful life just outside a small Midwestern town in the U.S. The engaging story joins Will at the crest of his innocence. Soon, though, the young boy becomes the victim of a sexual assault, and the reader is then given an honest look at the feelings and reactions of both the boy and his assailants during this event. Afterwards, the reader is taken through the full range of emotions the boy experiences, as he tries to come to terms with what has been done to him. Later, when he learns of other boys in his town who have recently been attacked in the same manner by the same assailants, Will pulls himself together and decides to take it upon himself to put an end to these assaults.
