Summary

A 14 year old boy comes to live with a foster family and tries to regain his baby daughter, amongst some prejudice

A heartbreaking story, narrated by twelve-year-old Jack, whose family is caring for fourteen-year-old Joseph.

Joseph is misunderstood. He was incarcerated for trying to kill a teacher. Or so the rumours say.

But Jack and his family see something others in town don't want to. What's more, Joseph has a daughter he's never seen.

The two boys go on a journey through the bitter Maine winter to help Joseph find his baby - no matter the cost.
