On the run in a stolen car with a kidnapped baby in tow Custis Curl and Boobie are three young people with deeply troubled pasts and bleak futures. As they struggle to find a new life for themselves it becomes painfully clear that none of them will ever be able to leave the past behind. Yet for one redemption is waiting in the unlikeliest of places. With the raw language of the street and lyrical stream-of-consciousness prose Adam Rapp hurtles the reader into a world of lost children a world that is not for the faint of heart. Gripping disturbing and starkly illuminating his hypnotic narration captures the voices of two damaged souls - a third speaks only through drawings - to tell a story of alienation deprivation and ultimately the saving power of compassion.
