"Balance" by Kit White
Lawrence, a popular, confident, fifteen year old is
just cruising through life. He can leap the line, screw the system and keep his BALANCE, as easy as. But a dark twist of fate sends Lawrence spiraling out of control.
He is sent to an institution for young offenders of all cultures and temperaments. As Lawrence struggles to come to terms with his imprisonment: the violence and disrespect, he makes powerful enemies but he also finds friendship and courage. This original, cleverly structured story keeps the reader guessing until the very end.
