This book is not one that ordinarily I would choose for my own reading. I had to read this book for a Children's Literature class, and it turned out to be a very easy read.

It's interesting how many children there are that actually could be the protagonist for this story. As an educator, I see children that could potentially fit this profile everyday.

Noteworthy excerpts:
"It made Jess ache inside to watch his dad grab the little ones to his shoulder, or lean down and hug them". (page 23)

"For the first time in his life he got up every morning with something to look forward to."

Both painful one-liners, but they are the realities that some of us as adults and especially children, must deal with every day.
