- "After fathering a baby, a teenager moves in with his karate-loving uncle and tries to come to terms with his guilt -- and find a way to forgive" -- from publisher's web site
- "This isn't how Josh expected to spend senior year. He thought he'd be hanging out with his best friends, Dave and Caleb, driving around, partying, just like always. But here he is, miles from home -- new school, new life, living with his Jackie-Chan-obsessed uncle, Larry, and trying to forget. But Josh can't forget. So many things bring back memories of last year and the night that changed everything. Every day the pain, the shame, and the just not knowing are never far from his thoughts. Why is he such a loser? How could he have done what he did? He finds some moments of peace when he practices karate with Stella, the girl upstairs and his one real friend. As they move together through the katas, Josh feels connected in a way he has never felt before. He wonders if they could be more than friends, but Stella's jealous boyfriend will make sure that doesn't happen. And maybe it doesn't matter. If Stella knew the truth, would she still think he was a True Karate Man?" -- from publisher's web site
