Seventeen-year-old Webb's abusive stepfather has made it impossible for him to live at home, so Webb survives on the streets of Toronto by busking with his guitar and working as a dishwasher. When Webb's grandfather dies, his will stipulates that his grandsons fulfill specific requests. Webb's task takes him to the Canol Trail in Canada's Far North, where he finds out that there are much scarier things than the cold and the occasional grizzly bear. With a Native guide, two German tourists and his guitar for company, Webb is forced to confront terrible events in his grandfather's past and somehow deal with the pain and confusion of his own life.

Devil's Pass, gives hope
July 2nd, 2013
Tightly written, believable, unexpected twists of coming of age. Jim is likable from the start, his grandfather even more so. Living with secrets such as abuse does ripple, as well as ppl from the outside can see things are not right. How do we survive, plus overcome hardships not of our own making, thus become a better person for it? The stories action scenes bring much balance as does the humor of some of the situations. Supporting characters are nicely blended in. The homeless aspects are skimmed without too cruel a turn to make the book unbearable. Recommend for ALL ages above ten years.
