Summary
"[Marshall, an eleven-year-old autistic boy,] lives in a remote juvenile center in Colorado, where he is bullied by the other boys, misunderstood by all of the other staff except Leslie, and so overwhelmed by the sounds and smells in the cafeteria that getting his lunch is a daily terror. During a blizzard, an unexpected mishap for Marshall and Leslie leads to Marshall's disappearance into the wilderness. His father, Jace, knows that Marshall has gone searching for a secret on the mountain. To save Marshall, Jace must not only overcome the winter elements, but his own self-doubt in this tale of sacrifice, hope, and the bond between father and son."--Back cover.
