Review: On My Honor by Marion Dane Bauer

Synopsis: Joel dares his best friend, Tony, to a swimming race in a dangerous river. Both boys jump in, but when Joel reaches the sandbar, he finds Tony has vanished. How can he face their parents and the terrible truth? (from the back of the book)

Review: This is a sad, hard story. However, it's a good book, one that would be excellent to help someone through the death of a loved one, particularly a death one might feel guilty over. It's a quite read, but leaves a mark.
