Eric Hayes is a boy who had the unfortunate luck, to lose his father to a brain disease. The new neighborhood he lived in was what seems to be heaven, but that is far from the truth. One day when Eric was shooting hoops at his new school, he saw a sight that had made him feel nauseous inside. It was a boy running from somewhere with red stains on his shirt that Eric thought was blood. In the middle of the school year his teacher gave a speech to each of his classes about standing by and watching others be bullied for fun.I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking for action, comedy, romance, and something fun other than electronics.
