Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fortunately, Lyon's sharply drawn characters steer the story away from melodrama, and she balances the heavy elements with humor.” Publishers Weekly
“Lyon conveys a strong sense of Southern life through the cadence of speech, wonderful turns of phrase, and the patterns of daily life.” School Library Journal
“Lyon expertly weaves together plot, setting, and a cast of unforgettable characters to create a compelling, believable, emotionally honest tale about one boy's coming of age. You'll know Sonny when you're finished reading his story-and you'll be glad you do.” Kirkus Reviews
“Sonny's search for the truth in 1950s Alabama is told with a smooth and emotive narration by Nick Landrum.” AudioFile
