Back cover text:
Daily, teenagers enter into the war between being true to themselves and fitting in with their peers. One such troubled teen is Chris Dunkin, who has been a substance abuser since age twelve. Now fifteen, he is drinking alcohol more often and using heavy drugs to keep himself high. His grades, relationships, and dream of becoming a professional football player are quickly slipping through his fingers. Starved for strength and willpower, Chris knows that he is in over his head. One evening, a ray of hope shines into his dark world in an unexpected form. Fed with the food of encouragement, Chris sets out on a quest to find the true meaning of freedom.
This story of teenage acceptance and the battle over moral convictions will hit home with many teens looking for answers.
