At twelve, Gary Sanderson found himself in Radcliffe – the oppressive juvenile detention facility for boys. At sixteen, he has a chance for a new, normal life in a new, normal town with foster parents Don and Gail Morgan. He attempts to build this new life, even as his past catches up to him and the problems of a small town erupt all around him. These problems spin out of control when the girl he loves asks him one question: Will he kill her father? Off Track is the character study of a boy, shaped by abuse and burdened with the death of his father, trying to survive in a world he hadn’t expected to find.
