A Librarian Reads…

I Will Save You by Matt de la Pena

Kidd’s had a rough life. But this summer, things are looking up. He’s run away from his group home to take Mr. Red up on his offer of a job doing maintenance at a campsite. Red is like the father he wishes he’d had. Kidd even manages to get a dog and find a girl who seems to understand, and possibly even like him. But they don’t know the real him. The only person who knows all of Kidd’s secrets and failings is his former best friend. And when Devon shows up at the campsite, Kidd knows he’ll do whatever it takes to protect his new life from this reminder of his old one.

Haunting and emotionally taut, this thriller will keep you guessing and one the edge of your seat until the last page. Recommended for high school and up.
