Dead Ends: A Writing Competition

Don't miss out on this brand new book from the author of "Butter"....


The blurb:

Dane Washington doesn’t think he’s a bully. Some guys just need to be put in their place. But Twain High doesn’t see it that way, and Dane is on the brink of getting kicked out of school – until the boy with Down Syndrome moves in across the street.

Billy D. has the power to keep Dane out of trouble, and he’ll do it for a price. Dane has to help Billy D. find his missing dad.

But Billy’s only clue is an atlas full of riddles and towns that don’t appear on most maps. As the boys unravel the clues and get closer to finding Billy’s dad, Dane realizes the biggest riddle of all may be the one Billy D. is keeping to himself.
