Now, show us the cover! Drum roll, please......
Shade has been kept in the dark for eight long years. Now he’s facing a world that terrifies him. A world that seems to hold no place for him.
When the authorities are unable to find a home for Shade, Penny reluctantly accepts him into the secure school she manages, despite thinking it’s the wrong place for him. Penny fears for his safety among the other troubled children. In an attempt to forestall the disaster she predicts will happen, she appoints one of them as his champion.
Dory, an engaging seventeen-year-old with mental health issues, is proud to be chosen as Shade’s champion, and throws his heart and soul into the job. In doing so, he’s forced to face the thing he fears most—his own emotions.
An unexpected friendship begins to grow into something more, until a spiteful act tears them apart and leaves them broken.
When Dory falls ill, Shade is forced to face his demons, and struggles to find the strength and courage he needs to fight for the right to love, and to be there for his champion when he needs him most.
Come back next week to find out more about Shade's Champion!
