The Fire Escape (Paperback)
The patients at Lakewood Residence Center have a mental disability. That is, all but one: Peter Doyle. Under the suffocating watch of his mother, a nurse at Lakewood, 15-year-old Peter grows up restricted to his room, sheltered from the watchful eyes of the outside community. But that's about to change. With a newfound freedom, Peter journeys back to his childhood town where the secrets of his time at Lakewood unfold, forcing him to decide between the life he's known and a life he never thought was possible.
