When four-year-old Bo is orphaned in the car accident that kills his mother, he becomes the focus of a fierce custody struggle and flees into himself -- away from the sea of strangers -- where he inhabits an eerie inner landscape. The world of "make believe" into which we are drawn in this remarkable novel -- hailed for both its lyrical prose and its profound dramatic and emotional intensity -- is the world of four-year-old Bo, cast adrift in a sea of strangers as he becomes the focus of a fierce custody battle between two sets of grandparents, one black and one white. "This is a compelling story that will leave readers haunted by Scott's powerful moral vision."-Publishers' Weekly
