A wonderfully well written account, in the form of a reminiscence, of a few days of pivotal importance to the life of the young narrator, Tucker, abused, virtually abandoned, and now on the road. No easy answers here. The characters are vivid and involving, the story gripping, the element of fantasy beautifully handled. A story like this invites sentimentality; Ms. Mason-Black avoids it scrupulously.
If this book had been 300 pages long instead of just over twenty, I think I'd still have read it in one sitting.
