The Canary List by Sigmund Brouwer

Twelve year old Jaimie only has one person she can go to with her problems, her teacher.
 She can see things that are dark, and she runs from them. Crockett, Mr G. as Jaimie calls
 him, only has one thing on his mind, to spend the anniversary of his daughter's death by
 himself and by doing so getting himself drunk.Every year on the anniversary of his
daughter's death, Crockett goes on a three day drinking binge. If not for his son, Mickey,
Crockett would very likely fall into a spiral of despair and ruin. He pours his heart
into teaching troubled kids including Jaimie Piper, a twelve-year-old girl with her own
tragic past. When Jaimie comes to his house one night, running away from her foster home,
it turns Crockett's entire world upside down. Child pornography is found in his home, the
 only person who can support his alibi has disappeared, and once in jail, the guards put
the word out that he is a child molester.This book starts off with a sequence of action
packed events and just draws you  right in with the plot.The story has a fast pace and
 was very easy to get into. There are a lot of twists and turns and you just want
 everything to come out ok, especially for the 'good guys'. It was well written with
much detail, and is sure to appeal to a varied audience.
I recieved a free copy of this book for review from the publisher. I was not required to
 write a positive review and the ideas expressed are my own.
