Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  SHC
Toby has moved around the country with his mom ever since he can remember. They never stay in one place long enough to settle down. Now as a teenager he begins to question their constant change of addresses, his mom's many different names and her never-ending lies about her past. Is she a CIA agent, criminal or just a real nut case? The answer has a dramatic effect on Toby and it changes the way he looks at his life and those around him. It took some time to get into it but once you have gotten past the firts parts it gets better.
