For fifteen-year-old Shadow Thompson, life ended seven years ago--the night his older brother Daniel ran away from home, taking not only Shadow's piggy bank but also his ability to trust. That's when Shadow stopped depending on other people and turned inward, relying only on himself. But now Daniel is back and he stands accused of murder.
