Carl knows hes playing with fire every time he fixes up a stolen car stereo to resell. But he needs the money; how else is he going to get away from his boozing mom and her endless parade of classy guys.Then one night his mothers drinking gets out of control and Carls plan to get himself a decent life takes a nosedive.
Sent to live with distant relatives far away from the life he has always known, Carl is faced with a decision: run away and stick with The Plan, or come up with a new one . . . fast.

A strong central character . . . a well-placed, believable plot.
School Library Journal, starred review

Carls . . . turnabout is convincing enough to sustain the storys power.
