Clay's mother walks out and abandons him just as his father had done earlier. He takes to the streets to survive and is minded by a near-to-death alcoholic and a young, resourceful black man. When, inevitably, he's discovered by the authorities and fostered, his life still feels empty, without the love and caring his two streetwise friends had given him. The cover implies excitements that aren't within, but here's a well-written, thought-provoking book for serious-minded readers.
