Driven by a secret he cannot bear to examine, thirteen-year-old Benjamin Sorowen leaves his clothes and a suicide note, grabs a large stone and steps into a California reservoir. He releases the stone and strokes away into darkness-not to die but to stop being who he is. After retrieving supplies and clothes prepared in advance, he changes his name, hitches to New Mexico, and begins a new life in a cave near Albuquerque. However, he soon finds running from a place is easier than running from a past. Painful though it is, he finally realizes he must face the truth about what he tried to drown in the reservoir before he will have a chance at the better life he longs for.
If you use one of Kobo's free reading apps you won't need to worry about download options most of the time. Your Kobo reading app can easily add Kobo Store books to your library for a seamless reading experience.
Download options matter when:
You want to read your book on an eReader other than the Kobo eReader (see here for a list of supported eReaders).
The book you want is only available as an Adobe DRM PDF.
In both of these cases you will need to:
Download a copy of your book to your computer.
Open the book using a free application called Adobe Digital Editions.
You can also use Digital Editions to transfer the book to your eReader. See here for more information on Digital Editions.
