I shouldn't have come back to Miami ... I've been escaping cops' notice for a year now. I'm no longer Michael Daye, high school athlete with a promising future. Now I look like someone whit no future. When Michael saw a chance to leave town with a traveling carnival a year ago, he took it. Back then, his home life was spinning violently out of control. The carnival, with its "no questions asked" policy, seemed like a welcome escape. But now Michael's job has brought him back to Miami, where his mother is on trial for murder, making him wonder how much longer he can hide from his past ... and his future.

great book about loss love and fate. sort of slow read to start with, but gets better at the middle.i like the way the writer makes us think about acceptful justice and where you would draw the line. the ending makes me think about loss and my life of how ive lost poeple just tlike him.

'Nothing To Lose' was alright. I enjoyed Flinn's book 'A Kiss In Time' because it was funny and hopeful, which is what I'd hoped for from this book. However, I was wrong. This is a darker story about a murder and a battered wife. It was pretty depressing and it seemed like a lot of the problems weren't getting solved. The story was still acceptable because Alex Flinn is just a good writer, and the reader wanted to know what happened next... but I'd still rather read something else.
