Fitz: A Father, a Son, and a Gun by Mick Cochrane

Fifteen year old Fitz has never met his father even though they live in the same town.  Fitz has been getting more and more angry about the fact that his father doesn't want to have anything to do with him.  Determined to get some answers Fitz cuts school one day and goes to confront his father, bringing along a gun.  I can't say I loved this book personally but I do think it is a great book for reluctant readers.  The story isn't too simplistic and the hook of the gun makes it easy to sell.
