    Jimmy Deane with an "e" is the quintessential orphan, surviving abandonment twice before his feet touch down in kindergarten with the help of his namesake, the late, great, James Byron Dean, and the quirky next-door neighbor, Gillis Lee Wainwright. Skolnick's novel is in turn, irreverent, funny, and sorrowful as she weaves a deft fable populated with a comic and tragic raft of colorful characters meant to be part cautionary tale for parents (and not just those within the adoption triad) and part social critique.
