Twelve-year-old Frankie Joe Huckaby, forced to live with the father he never knew, a stepmother, and four half-brothers in Illinois, starts a delivery service to finance his escape back to his mother in Texas, not realizing he is making a better life for himself than he ever had with her.
Thanks for the nice review. I’m very glad you liked the book. Are you a writer, too? If so, I give some writerly advice on the Young Author Page of my website at http://www.lutricia-lois-clifton.com. The best way to learn the craft of writing, of course, is by reading. Very best,
