ÒThe shrinkadinks think I have a screw loose. AinÕt playing with a full deck. Whacked-out wiring. Missing marbles.Ó Irreverent, foulmouthed seventeen-year-old Cricket is the oldest ward in a Catholic boysÕ home in MaineÑand his life sucks. With prospects for the future that range from professional fighter to professional drug dealer, he seems doomed to a life of Òcriminal rapscallinity.Ó In fact, things look so bleak that Cricket canÕt help but wonder if his best option is one final cliff dive into the great unknown. But then Wynona Bidaban steps into his world, and Cricket slowly realizes that maybe, just maybe, life doesnÕt totally suck.
