Description

Mark Childress is the author of the New York Times best-seller Crazy in Alabama. Here he again turns his keen literary eye to smalltown Southern living. Yankee transplant Daniel Musgrove can't seem to fit in at his Mississippi high school. When he meets fellow outsider Tim Cousins, things look up. Then the two boys' battles with a local bully escalate into a violent act that rocks the town. "Childress eloquently addresses racism, tentative adolescent love, family dysfunction ... with plenty of wit and insight ..."-Booklist

Professional reviews

"This novel starts out fast and sharp and doesn't slow down until it has run its course. Young Daniel Musgrove is out of place in his new Mississippi home; as a self-proclaimed Yankee, he's always a step or two apart from his new peer group at school. Jeff Woodman's narration is reminiscent of the TV show "The Wonder Years." Woodman incorporates youthful exuberance with a touch of nostalgic wisdom as his voice brings this novel to life. Author and narrator blend humor and humanity without any touch of caricature. In the early 1970s, Daniel sits awkwardly in the front row of the Civil Rights Movement in America, and his engaging, thoughtful observations are riveting. L.B.F.
