Rick’s gone along with his best friend Jeff even when Jeffs acted like a bully and a jerk. But now Rick wants his own life to be… understood. Even if it means breaking some old friendships and making some new ones. As they did in their novel Melissa (formerly published as “George”), in Rick, award-winning author Alex Gino explores what it means to search for your own place in the world… and all the steps you and the people around you need to take in order to get where you need to be.
