From School Library Journal
Grade 7-12-- Jason Feldon's mother is scheduled to be executed for murder in one week, on his 18th birthday. But is she really a murderer? Jason has lived with that question since he was 10 years old, when she was charged with the murder of her longtime boyfriend. Since the conviction, Jason has moved from Florida to New York City to live with his mother's only sister. Then comes a call from the chief detective on his mother's case, and from this point on, Jason's life takes a dramatic turn. Bennett's style is sure to appeal to reluctant readers.

The only weaknesses in the plot are that the true identity of the killer is...
