Summary

A boy spends the summer getting to know his older brother before he is executed, having spent the last ten years on death row.

Joe hasn't seen his brother for ten years, and it's for the most brutal of reasons. Ed is on death row.

But now Ed's execution date has been set, and Joe is determined to spend those last weeks with him, no matter what other people think...

From one-time winner and two-time Carnegie Medal shortlisted author Sarah Crossan, this poignant, stirring, huge-hearted novel asks big questions.

What value do you place on life? What can you forgive? And just how do you say goodbye?
