Brick's home life is a horror show. His dad has a temper like a pressure valve; you never know when he's going to blow. His mom's a self-absorbed flake who leaves the care of his little sister to Brick. A guy could go crazy with all that tension. It's no wonder Brick has to let off a little steam of his own once in a while. It's not like he's anything remotely like his dad. The day he turns sixteen, Brick's out of there. This summer he's going to take up Mr. Larkin's offer of work, even though he's been forbidden to "fraternize with the neighbors." And he's going to earn enough money to escape. Get out and never look back. But…who will his dad turn to when he doesn't have a son to kick around anymore? A compulsive read by the two-time winner of the Ann Connor Brimer Award, Home Truths is a revealing portrait of a bully-in-training and his journey to redemption.
