Synopsis

Missing Danny follows a runaway from abuse through foster care to the high desert of Arizona. Like a modern day Huck Finn, he falls in with whoever he meets long enough to survive under different names. When he finally makes a new home, his mother makes contact, offering another 'new home.' He chooses to stay put, stop running and then tries to help an abused school friend escape abuse as well.
All he can do is distract the local posse in a deadly chase into the mountains.
She escapes, but of course Danny can't find out where she went until the sequel!

Target Audience

Who are your readers?

Middle grade to young adult.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your readers with this design?

Danny changes his name as often as his underwear, partly to escape the blame of a wildfire his father starts by stupidity. Along the way, he tries on new habits and life styles, arriving at a new home, and a new identity of his own making. Not many kids get to chose their own name, their own home, or even their school, for gosh sakes.
Don't miss Danny's final chase scene, which he also invents to confuse the local posse, who are none too swift, he thinks?
