Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seven-year-old Che Selkirk was raised in isolated privilege by his New York grandmother. The son of radical student activists at Harvard in the late sixties, Che has grown up with the hope that one day his parents will come back for him. So when a woman arrives at his front door and whisks him away to the jungles of Queensland, he is confronted with the most important questions of his life: Who is his real mother? Did he know his real father? And if all he suspects is true, what should he do? In this artful tale of a young boy's journey, His Illegal Self lifts your spirit in the most unexpected way.

Synopsis:

Raised in isolated privilege by his New York grandmother, Che is the precocious son of radical student activists at Harvard in the late 1960s. Yearning for his famous outlaw parents, he bravely confronts his life, learning that nothing is what it seems.
