I will be a man soon and men do not run in fear but I give Manchee a little push and we walk even a little faster than before, giving the Mayor's House as wide a curve as possible till we're past it and on the gravel path that leads on towards our house.

About The Knife Of Never Letting Go:
Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee -- whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not -- stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden -- a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.Source: Info in the About The Knife Of Never Letting Go was taken from GoodReads at http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2118745.The_Knife_of_Never_Letting_Go on 08/04/2013.
