Publisher's Summary

Aglow is the story of 12-year-old Adam, a Jewish boy who likes to visit his gramps in the Bronx. His best friend there is Rafe, a Catholic. The difference doesn't matter to the boys, even after they get involved in the biggest miracle to hit the tri-state area in years. Over the course of a Thanksgiving weekend, they help cause and then react to an event that uplifts the neighborhood and the city. 

Rafe has faith that what they did was right, Adam has faith in Rafe, and they both have faith in the best cleaning product ever made.

An illuminating act engenders community

An illuminating story made more vivid by the narrative performance. I found myself pulled into the fable, first as a silent bystander, until drawn further into a merger between story morals and reality - that we all long for a sign of hope; moments of the story precipitated actual tears.
