    "9th grade required reading"

    Loved it! We (my son & I) thoroughly appreciated the subtle rural and urban life comparisons. Myers touched on so many significant points, e.g. the wisdom young folks can glean from elder engagement, the modern pattern of grandparents as single parents, repeated cycles of disjointed father/son relationships, the sense of hopelessness felt by incarcerated individuals, etc.
