When his mother ran away, young Casey was left to deal with his father and his addictions, yet when his aunt steps in to plan an intervention, Casey knows it's the only option available but worries that he will be betraying his father's trust if he goes along with the plot.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Casey needs a way out of the dark

Ever since his mother fled the scene, thirteen-year-old Casey has taken over her role: cooking, cleaning, and looking after his father when he's "sick." In denial about his father's secret drinking and drug problem, Casey is increasingly isolated, angry, and overwhelmed. But Dad's addiction isn't as secret as Casey thinks, as he learns when his aunt announces that an intervention is in the works. Casey is conflicted. He wants to help save his father, the person he loves most in the world, but he doesn't want to betray him.

In this powerful novel, Doug Wilhelm shows how denial can cut both ways, as Casey stops overriding his own feelings and discovers his own way toward confronting his father directly, face-to-face, for the first time.
