When his abusive father puts him onto the street, fifteen-year old Billy never could have imagined that he would be put on a journey that would force him to choose his place in a menacing world. Set in 1957, Billy’s story of fending for himself progresses in letters to his younger sister. He speaks for a generation that is captivated by UFOs and Elvis Presley. However, his letters also unveil the clash of innocence and iniquity, including a first sexual skirmish, until a confrontation with a band of threatening hunters forces him to take a stand – a dangerous one.
