Sometimes the longest journey is back to where you belong... Life was pretty exciting for Jonathan when he lived with his con-artist father. But now he has to stay with his grandparents while his dad hides from some angry customers, and life is tough. It's hard to make friends when your scamming them. Hard to gain the trust of wary grandparents. And hard to decide whether to leave when the coast is clear--or stand for a new and better life.

      This book was amazing. It kept me guessing in every time. The cover was really dated and I always wondering I living in the story when I reading it. Life was very exciting for Jonathan when he lived with his con-artist father. But now he has to stay with his grandparents while his dad had to hides from his angry customers, and life is tough. This is why it is hard to make friends when you are scamming people. I benefit a lesson from this book we can’t deceive other people because you will become a cheater which people will not trust you anymore. I recommend to all people because this book was a good way to demonstrate how people change.
