El policía se sacó algo del bolsillo. Era una fotografía.

—¿Lo reconoces, Josh?"

No podía creerlo. Me la quedé mirando fijimente.

Andrew también la miró. Después de unos segundos dijo:

—Parece el garrote que papá te dio.

—¿No son ésas tus iniciales, Josh? —preguntó la mujer policía.

Contesté que sí con la cabenza.

—Fue con esto con lo que golpearon a Scott. Lo tenemos en la estación de policía, Josh. Además de tus iniciales, tiene tus huellas digitales.

Luego de que su ex mejor amigo, Scott, lo delatara, Josh tuvo que mudarse a un hogar comunitario. Ahora se ha mudado con su hermano y su autoritaria cuñada, y tiene que tomar una clase para manejar su ira. Cuando un enemigo de su pasado comienza a presionarlo de nuevo y parece que Scott va a volver a las andadas, Josh lucha por controlarse. Acusado de un crimen que no cometió, va a tener que hacer uso de su nueva fortaleza para mantener la calma...y su libertad.

Josh had been living in a group home after being ratted out by Scott, his one-time best friend. Now he has moved in with his brother and overbearing sister-in-law and has been sent to a class designed to teach him to deal with his anger. When an old enemy continues to push his buttons and Scott appears to be up to his old tricks, Josh struggles to control his temper. Framed for a crime he didnít commit, it will take all of his new-found strength to keep his cool and his freedom.
Tri-State YA Book Review Committee - January 1, 2011
"A good choice for younger teen readers as well as for more mature readers. Bilingual books like this one with decent language and plot line are important for Spanish-speaking readers. Both the middle school and high school libraries need this book for their bilingual section!"
