Joe All Alone by Joanna Nadin
When Joe's mom and her boyfriend Dean fly off on an unexpected vacation, Joe is left behind. A week to himself, even though he's forbidden to tell anyone about it, promises to be an adventure and a welcome break from the gruff Dean. As the week passes, though, things start to spiral out of control.
The concept of this book sounds like every young teen's dream: a total lack of supervision. Joe's voice is strong and his story is pretty compelling so far.
