Now, I didn't know this before I started reading this book, but this is part of the Tillerman Family series, none of which I have read. But this is a great stand-alone book, and you will definitely feel emotion at the very end. It starts off kind of slow, but it gets better as the charecter starts to develop. My first reaction, Bullet is a jerk. By the middle, I still thought that. By the end, I still thought that, but I understood him a little better. Overall, a good read, and the very end will leave you with some feeling that there is going to be more going on with Bullet's mother (thus, the Tillerman series.)

"He ran because it was what he did, what he was. He didn't run to win races, or to beat anybody. He ran because his body was built for it. He ran for himself. Simple as that."
