Description

In a single night--graduation night--Thomas has to decide: do what everyone has always expected of him, or forge an entirely new path? Bryan Bliss's absorbing examination of one boy struggling with expectations and realities will appeal to readers of Sara Zarr and Chris Crutcher. Thomas is supposed to leave for the Army in the morning. His father was Army. His brother, Jake, is Army--is a hero, even, with the medals to prove it. Everyone expects Thomas to follow in that fine tradition. But Jake came back from overseas a completely different person, and that has shaken Thomas's certainty about his own future. And so when his long-estranged friend Mallory suggests one last night of adventure, Thomas takes her up on the distraction. Over the course of this single night, Thomas will lose, find, resolve, doubt, drive, explore, and leap off a bridge. He'll also face the truth of his brother's post-traumatic stress disorder and of his own courage. In Bryan Bliss's deft hands, graduation night becomes a night to find yourself, to find each other, to find a path, and to know that you always have a place--and people--to come back to.show more

Review quote

"Told over one night, Thomas's story is both classic night-before-it-all-changes hijinks-parties, fighting, nostalgia, and unexpected friendships-and part darker, existential concerns connected to the realities of war. ...The strong emotional impact will attract serious readers."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)show more
