Summary
Life isn't easy for Doug Swieteck. His dad is abusive, his brother is a bully, and most people in his new town look at him like he is a thug. At the local library he finds a friend in Lil Spicer and discovers the art collection of Audubon, two things that change his life.
Critique
A nuanced and multi-layered coming of age story packed with amazing characters, humor, heartbreak and triumph. Highly recommend.
