At fifteen, Ethan is on the fast track to nowhere. In and out of group homes and constantly in trouble, Ethan is fighting to find a sense of who he is. After breaking into an amusement park and being savaged by a police dog, he is befriended by a paramedic. Offered a choice of court or going on a ride-along in an ambulance, Ethan takes what he thinks is the easy way out. On Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, Ethan comes face to face with the horrific truth from his past and must learn to deal with where he came from--and where he is going.

Terrific story .Kept the interest up through the whole book. A real different plot and a very good one .
The truth from Ethan's past has gotten in his way all along his life , but when he comes face to face with a female paramedic who knew his Mom , things really start to get complicated and just maybe Ethan can figure out why he has the attitude and anger he has with her help.
