?A mature, disciplined novel which excites a response in the reader....Hard to forget.? ?"The New York Times"From the Back Cover:
'“We were like brothers,” I said, desperate. “You were my best friend -” He laughed then, and his eyes were the golden, hard, flat eyes of a jungle animal. “Like a friend once said to me, ‘That was then, this is now.’”
I broke out in a sweat and was suddenly glad of the walls and the bars. I think if he could have, Mark would have killed me.'
Bryon and Mark have been inseparable best friends from childhood, but now, at sixteen, they both sense they are growing apart.
