for Inside Out by Terry Trueman
Zach Wahhsted is used to hearing these brutal words. But today he isn't the only one in danger of dying.
A busy coffee shop -- a robbery gone wrong. Two gunmen, nine hostages, flash-ing lights, itchy trigger fingers. And Zach, a seemingly ordinary teenager, is caught in the middle of the mayhem.
But nobody realizes that Zach -- who has no gun and no knife -- has a mind more dangerous than any weapon.
Never what he seems and always on the edge, Zach is an unforgettable character in a new book by Terry Trueman that is filled with the same shocking power and heartbreaking compassion as his Printz Honor Book, stuck in neutral.
