The 40th anniversary edition of a groundbreaking teen classic
When the grandmother who raised him dies, Davy Ross, a lonely
thirteen-year-old boy, must move to Manhattan to live with his
estranged mother. Between alcohol-infused lectures about her

only comfort is his beloved dachshund Fred. Things start to look up
when he and a boy from school become friends. But when their
relationship takes an unexpected turn, Davy struggles to understand
what happened and what it might mean. "Shattering... frank...
