Don't Shoot!

By Michael J. Rosen

"This is a rich and provocative story." — School Library Journal

Fourteen-year-old Chase Riley has just moved with his parents from Columbus, Ohio, to a farmhouse in the country, but it may as well be on another planet. For starters, there’s a plague of cicadas, but that’s nothing compared to the awesome appearance of deer in the woods — or strapped to hunters’ cars. Chase seeks refuge at his computer, blasting off droll commentary, until a freak accident involving his own dog changes everything. And that’s when he begins devising The Plan.
