For eighteen gritty years, a boy dodges the cracks in system in this "piercing, unforgettable novel" ("Booklist") from E.R. Frank that "Kirkus Reviews "deemed "a work of sublime humanity."
America is mistaken for black, Asian, Native American, even white. He doesn't seem to fit in anywhere, and, parentless, he is shunted for eighteen years from a foster home, to the street, and ultimately to the brink of despair. Can one doctor pull him back and bring America somewhere new--somewhere with a future?
"America "was named a New York Times Notable Book of the Year and a YALSA Best Book for Young Adults and has received numerous other honors, and E.L. Frank's extensive experience as a clinical social worker and therapist is why "the author's ability to capture so much emotion in the details makes this book remarkable" ("Publishers Weekly," starred review).
