Creepers

Front Cover
Random House Children's Books, 2004 - Juvenile Fiction - 192 pages
Jamie was the best Creeper at school. He could sneak through more yards than anyone else without being caught. He was fast and hardly made any noise. I was surprised when he wanted to Creep with me. I was pretty good, but with Jamie I felt like I could climb over any fence and never get caught.
Then we decided to do Derwent Drive--the longest Creep in the village. You had to move so fast, most of the way along you didn't have time to think. We were halfway down when it happened. I went Haywire. I just freaked out. I don't know why. I'd handled big dogs before, but this time I lost it. I can't believe I did that. I got away, but Jamie was Snared! The police came! What am I going to do now? And what's going to happen to Jamie?
A brilliant first novel about friendship, courage, and loss.
