It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read and I don’t say this lightly because I don’t believe most books and stories are that good. I can never relate to most even when I try.
And I read a lot of college level reading books, but this one stands out. It’s a children’s book that is not willing to shy away from the ugly tension of the past; featuring a young African-American boy and his hound dog as they struggle to deal with the cruelties of life. I’ve read this book literally 10x over and I recommend it to anybody and everybody!!
