Keenan is used to a fast-paced, independent life as he travels the world with his mom, an international schoolteacher. But when he is sidelined by tuberculosis, he winds up on the seemingly sleepy island of Centerlight with his dad. Situated right on the border of Canada and the US, the island’s thrilling history of gangsters and gunfights appears to be just that – in the past. Yet, when a local resident, Zarabeth, befriends Keenan, their friendship takes them on a suspenseful adventure and brings that history roaring back to life.
