Outstanding, Young Adult, Friendship, Guilt, Family, Gun Violence
At age four, Sebastian Cody did the unthinkable: he picked up his father's loaded gun and shot his baby sister. Now, ten years later, he's contemplating firing a gun for the second time in his life, and for the last time. But his plans change when he makes an unexpected friend and discovers meaning he'd been missing. When his newfound peace comes crashing down, Sebastian battles with his guilt and his options for the future, recognizing for the first time how pain and anguish color his views of everyone in his life, and how the slight possibility of redemption shines a light into corners he thought must forever be in darkness.
