Growing up on the mean city streets, sixteen-year-old Trey Carter learned the law of natural selection very well. He realized that to survive, he had to strike first and strike hard. That approach earned him the respect of his friends and enemies alike, until the day a fight went too far and his hardcore mentality landed him in jail. With a drug-addicted mother and a father he has never met, his only chance for release from the juvenile detention center is to move to rural West Virginia and live with his estranged grandfather, the very man he blames for every problem in his life. In the novel Break Away, Chad Arthur takes the reader every step of the journey with Trey Carter as he fights his own resentment and tries to outrun the demons of his past in search of a better life. Break Away is a realistic story of redemption and loyalty that readers of all ages will enjoy. Cheer Trey one moment and scream at him in frustration the next as he tries to adjust to life away from the big city and discover what it really means to be a family. This is an eLIVE book.
