This dark and gritty new story from New Brunswick author Robert Rayner examines the moral choices of one teen with a childhood filled with emotional neglect and social bullying, and how haunting real-life choices made when you’re young can be when you’re older.

Life was never easy for Julian, aka Scab. After years of being tormented by his peers and ignored by his parents, he’s about to show everyone that he has what it takes to make it. But he finds himself in a situation where he has to choose between his own ambitions and the only person who’s ever cared about him.
