Summary
In a tiny South Carolina coastal town in 1916, fourteen-year-old Willie T. Allson copes with unusual characters in this coming-of-age first novel.
Critique
Memorable characters in an unique plot that blends issues of race, religion, and superstition. One mild sex scene. Fine writing. Dark humor. An unusual book.
