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".

I thoroughly enjoyed this text. I initially selected it for reading because I identified with many characteristics of the main character as referenced in the synopsis. The passionate reading by the author was outstanding. It was a delightful read. Highly recommend this book. An entertaining and thought provoking piece of literature.
