When fourteen-year-old artistic genius Kieran Woods finds the body of a homeless man floating in the river, he refuses to believe the death was accidental. In a race against time, Kieran embarks on solving the mystery. Not only must he find the killer, he must also escape his abusive stepfamily to save himself and the people he loves. Can Kieran catch the killer before the killer catches him?
SMART is an uplifting story of how one young boy uses his art and unique mind to triumph in a world that doesn't understand him. Kieran will captivate readers young and old.
