Somewhere in the Darkness by Walter Dean Myers
Jimmy hasn’t seen his father in nine years. But one day he comes back — on the run from the law. Together, the two of them travel across the country — where Jimmy’s dad will find the man who can exonerate him of the crime for which he was convicted. Along the way, Jimmy discovers a lot about his father and himself — and that while things can’t always be fixed, sometimes they can be understood and forgiven.
A teenage boy accompanies his father, who has recently escaped from prison, on a trip that turns out to be an, often painful, time of discovery for them both.
