Summary Four years out of juvenile detention, in present day Florida, Ricky Plyer's life has turned around - graduation, girlfriend, purpose. Then why does he commit suicide? His volunteer mentor and friend, businesswoman Christina Spear can't believe it. The more she learns, the less she understands and the more she's convinced that Ricky did not take his own life. Having lost a son six years earlier fuels her ferocity to understand the full extent of Ricky's death. Her obsession to know a truth only she seems to believe leads her away from the world she knows toward a bleak dimension of lost souls. Her marriage and her business are damaged to the verge of collapse. Will she become a lost soul herself? Will she ever discover why Ricky died, or will she be forever haunted by the loss of another boy she loved? Inspired by actual events, Throwaway Boy explores the ability of people of different cultures to form life-time connections, and the consequences when belief becomes obsession. -- back cover
