STARRED REVIEW! "This compelling, suspenseful debut, a tough-love riff on guilt, forgiveness and redemption, asks hard questions to which there are no easy answers."--Kirkus Reviews starred review

"Introspective high schoolers will appreciate this engimatic coming-of-age story."--School Library Journal

"Think James Dashner's Maze Runner series meets High School Musical: an engaging and unique book."--Booklist

"Hank's personal tragedies are touching, as are his interactions with everyone from street kids Jack and Nessa to the more sedate citizens of Concord. His quests for answers and redemption should easily engage readers."--Publishers Weekly

"Cal Armistead's story of Hank is not only an English teacher's's also a clever look at identity and who we are without our baggage."--The Boston Globe

"Believable and nicely crafted, this story has much to recommend it. Pacing and suspense are just right as the mystery of Hank's identity begins to unravel and he faces the terrible event that stole his memory."--VOYA

"Even those with little interest in Thoreau will find this a solid psychological mystery about a teen who's made a mistake that he can't keep running from."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"The combination of mystery, romance and examination of self is one readers will embrace."--ALAN
