Product Overview

A 100 Best of the Best ALA Best Books for Young Adults of the Last 25 Years, Up Countryis a heart-wrenching, powerful story from an exceptionally talented writer.

Carl knows he's playing with fire every time he fixes up a stolen car stereo to resell. But he needs the money; how else is he going to get away from his boozing mom and her endless parade of classy guys? Then one night his mother's drinking gets out of control and Carl's plan to get himself a decent life takes a nosedive. Sent to live with distant relatives far away from the life he has always known, Carl is faced with a decision: run away and stick with The Plan, or come up with a new one...fast.
