When November Nelson loses her boyfriend, Josh, to a pledge stunt gone

horribly wrong, she thinks her life can't possibly get any worse. But

Josh left something behind that will change November's life forever, and

now she's faced with the biggest decision she could ever imagine. How in

the world will she tell her mom? And how will Josh's parents take the

news? She's never needed a friend more.

Jericho Prescott lost his best friend when he lost his cousin, Josh, and

the pain is almost more than he can bear. His world becomes divided into

"before" and "after" Josh's death. He finds the only way he can escape

the emptiness he feels is to quit doing the things that made him happy

when his cousin was alive, such as playing his beloved trumpet, and take

up football, where he hopes the physical pain will suppress the emotional.

But will hiding behind shoulder pads really help? And will his gridiron

obsession prevent him from being there for his cousin's girlfriend when

she needs him most?

This sequel to The Battle of Jericho is a no-holds-barred look at

what happens when life doesn't go as planned, by the acclaimed author of

the 2007 Coretta Scott King Award winner Copper Sun.
