Praise for Secondhand Summer:

"This well-plotted and believable story for teens will also appeal to adults and is one of the best novels I've read all year, northern-themed or otherwise."
--Alaska Dispatch News

"When his father dies suddenly, an adolescent boy faces more than one kind of loss as he navigates the perilous path between childhood and maturity in a new city in Walker's debut novel. . . . Walker's first-person narrative is engaging and vivid as he describes Sam's earnest progress toward discovering who he is. The author skillfully evokes the world of adolescent boys, full of gross-out jokes, territorial challenges, and a few true friends. . . . [Secondhand Summer] is absorbing as it describes the painfully awkward moment before kids become 'teenagers with cars and adults with power.' As it follows Sam through the changes and choices, the plot builds to an exciting conclusion that includes violence, redemption, and the first faltering steps toward a new life. A picaresque coming-of-age tale."
--Kirkus Reviews
