"Everyone had high expectations for Hudson Wheeler. His fourth grade teacher even wrote to his parents that Hudson was "going places." But everything went downhill after his father died on the battlefield of Iraq one year later. Now facing his senior year of high school without his two best friends by his side and with his teacher's letter still haunting him, Hudson seizes homeschooling as an opportunity to retreat from the world. What happen during this year will prove to be anything but a retreat, as Hudson experiences love and rejection for the first time and solves the mystery of the "girl in the window"--an apparition seen only by the WWII vet whose poignant plight forces Hudson out of the comfort zone of boyhood. Going Places is a peek into what male adolescence looks like today for those who don't follow traditional paths as they strive to find themselves"--Page 4 of cover.
