Mike’s lies are spinning out of control and now he’s the prime suspect in a murder. He can’t explain his bruised and skinned knuckles, and he can’t explain why he was seen near the park where Robbie was killed. But he insists he’s not a murderer. Still, if Mike really is innocent, why doesn’t his alibi check out, and why are the police so sure that he’s guilty?

Reviews

Library Media Connection

“As one of the rare cases of a foster child serving as protagonist, the series… can also serve as a basis for discussing what it means to lose a parent.” —Library Media Connection

VOYA

“[A] gritty first-person narrative that is both nuanced and complex…. Mike & Riel will appeal to readers who enjoy realistic fiction as well as mystery buffs.” —VOYA
