Hank is a page-turning, contemporary coming-of-age story of growing up amidst the wreckage of a troubled family, an alien school, and a world otherwise booby-trapped with alluring but perilous possibilities. We see not just Hank's confusion and dismay, but his grit, his honesty, and his vulnerability. A real, raw, and rewarding story. Book one of the Gunpowder Trilogy.
