J.D. is back in town after spending the summer "upstate." No one believes his cover story about visiting his aunt, and it's pretty clear that he has something to hide. It's also pretty clear that his mom made a new friend while he was away - a rescued Rottweiler that J.D. immediately renames Jonny Rotten (yes, after that guy in the Sex Pistols). Both tough but damaged, J.D. and Jonny Rotten slowly begin to trust each other. But when the Rottweiler bites Miles, one of J.D.'s so-called friends, J.D.'s world turns upside down and the secrets he has tried so hard to keep under wraps start to unravel.
A riveting tale of heroism, loyalty, and second chances, this gripping novel will strike a deep, lasting chord with underdogs of all shapes and sizes.
