Abstract

Sixteen-year-old Jamie feels isolated by the poverty of his surroundings, his lack of a father figure, and his mother's preoccupation with his younger, more demanding brothers. So when he falls in with the charismatic and much older John, he is slowly drawn into John's world of homophobia, violence, and murder.
