Product description

Most of us run from death row inmates. So why is Josh running towards one? The reason is simple: the prisoner is his brother, Ed. He’s been on death row for ten years, though he swears he’s innocent. Now his execution date is coming up. Josh and Ed need to have a big chat, where they can say the things they need to say to each other. Because they won’t get another chance. So Josh takes himself up to Texas, where his brother is waiting to die. Looking for a way to fix things. Looking for a way to say goodbye…

  • The heart-wrenching new verse novel by Sarah Crossan
  • A brutal, searing glimpse into a prisoner’s mixed-up world
  • Death, love and forgiveness – all explored in poignant verse
  • Sarah Crossan won the 2016 Carnegie Medal for One

This book contains mature content and language more suitable for older readers.
