The Millionth Year by A. M. Huff
"Somehow, I always thought that next to God, parents and little brothers never died. They would always be there."
Life was never the same for Cory Martin after his twelfth birthday, the day his whole world came crashing down. People he had grown to love were not who he thought they were. He was no longer who he thought he was.
Returning home after a ten year absence, Cory is forced to face his past in order to find his future.
