This riveting story is about a fifteen-year-old boy who, as the story opens, realizes he has no idea who he is - beyond his first name - or what has led to his loss of memory. From the outset, he's on the run, a street kid thrust out on his own, living by his wits and involved in a quest to find another lost teenager whose First Nations father is desperate for news of his son. In the process, he learns to survive and begins to get a sense of his strengths and character.
