“[Benaron] writes with an earnest clarity, bringing the boy to manhood and imparting to readers a culturally rich and unflinching story of resilience and resistance.” Chicago Tribune, editor’s choice

“A novel full of unspeakable strife but also joy, humor, and love.” O: The Oprah Magazine
“A powerful coming-of-age story that highlights the best and the worst of human nature.”The Christian Science Monitor
