16-year-old Aaron Soto lives in the Bronx in a near future where a technique has recently been discovered to erase traumatic memories. Aaron struggles to find happiness even with the presence of his mother, older brother, and girlfriend, as well as a set of childhood buddies and a new, intriguing friend, Thomas. He is haunted by painful physical and emotional scars: the memory of his father's suicide in their home, his own similar failed attempt with its resulting smiley face scar, not to mention his family's poverty and his personal angst at an increasingly strong attraction for Thomas. When Thomas doesn’t return his feelings and the guys in his neighborhood turn violently against him for being a “dude-liker,” Aaron wonders if he’d be better off if he could just forget his feelings for Thomas. But the treatment has its risks — is it a risk worth taking? Your teens will be gripped by this heart-wrenching look at a boy trying to find and accept his place in the world as he struggles to figure out why happiness can be so hard to come by. Ages 14 and up. 336pp.
