Freaks Like Us
'You're just a freak. You're just a stupid freak. Freaks don't

Jason's best friend, Sunshine, has vanished. If only Jason could push through all the voices in his head, he'd know what happened; he'd tell everyone; he'd find her. But then people don't always listen to kids like Jason . . .
A funny and compelling thriller about a boy on the edge of mainstream society.
