Quick, sharp read. Main character a slow witted boy who stays neutral as chaos surrounds. In what way, you may ask is the boy stupid? Well he forgets that his mom, who has diabetes, will get sick if she doesn't take her medicine. Massive blackout. VERY much makes me think if what will happen when Trump elected president. One man spewing hate but no one with the guts to stand up to him.

A perfect little book - for families to read together this year. It hits all of the societal issues we are dealing with now. Please share this with your kids. It's time to talk.
