Overview

Escaped and on the run, can Digger find redemption?

His bold escape from a juvenile detention facility nearly kills him, but soon an angry fourteen-year-old Digger is on the run, hijacking a tractor trailer, "borrowing" a bicycle, and stealing a canoe. When injuries stop him, Digger hides at a riverside campground, where he befriends a young boy and a girl his own age. New friends, a job caring for rescued horses, and risking his life to save another make Digger realize that the journey back is not just about getting home, it’s about discovering what he’s really running from, and how to come to terms with his troubled past.

Praise

“An exciting, thoughtful story.”
VOYA

“This high-action journey has suspense to spare, and the continual near misses will keep readers cheering for Digger.”
