About the Book

Fifteen-year-old Walker Morrison has somehow managed to survive nine years in a religious, preppy K-8 school with his sanity and an actual group of friends. The six-foot-one football player and wannabe movie director has finally emerged from his shell, given the piano performance of his life at a final school concert, and secured a passionate kiss from the beautiful Candace Watson. But little does Walker know that his life is about to slowly unravel before his eyes.

After spending the summer with his rebellious best friend, Josh, Walker starts his freshman year at a prestigious coed high school in Northern California. Although he has heard mixed reviews about his new school, Walker has decided not to let the comments build his expectations. After all, how bad can freshman year really be? Unfortunately, Walker is about to find out as his classmates begin to bully him. When he risks his life for the sake of Josh and is officially rejected by his peers, Walker decides he has had enough, exacts bloody revenge, and learns that sometimes what he wants in life isn’t exactly what he needs.

The Good Life is the story of a teen’s journey to find acceptance while searching for his true identity during his formative years.
