Twelve-year-old Davis lives in an old brownstone with his mother and grandmother in Brooklyn. He loves people-watching in Prospect Park, visiting his mom in the bakery she owns, and listening to the biggest operas he can find as he walks everywhere. But Davis is having a difficult summer. As questions of sexuality begin to enter his mind, he worries people don't see him as anything other than "husky".

The imagery and story structure are masterfully portrayed in this hilarious and heart-wrenching novel. I was immediately transported to my own childhood and remembered every little moment that seemed to be the end of the world at the time. "Husky" paints the picture of perseverance and patience as we each struggle, in our own ways, to be our own unique selves.
