Everyone thinks Jude did it.

Brett is president of her school's Unity Club. When a new group home for at-risk youth opens in the neighborhood, Brett becomes friends with Jude, one of the boys who lives at the home.

After a series of acts of vandalism, the community starts demanding that the group home be shut down. Brett doesn't believe that Jude, or any of the other teens, is responsible, but when an elderly woman is seriously injured, Brett begins to have doubts.

Karen Spafford-Fitz is the author of several novels for young people, including Vanish and Dog Walker in the Orca Currents series. She lives in Edmonton, Alberta. For more information, visit www.karenspafford-fitz.com.

"An engaging story about adversity, social responsibility, homelessness, and forgiveness. Tweens and teens will find this book to be very readable and relatable…Highly Recommended." - CM Magazine

"This little volume about social activism, volunteering, and social justice portrays in an easy-to-read style a somewhat complex social situation that veers close to politicization but manages to avoid such a simple label." - Resource Links
