Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Some of the stuff that goes on in the Auburn Street Projects, Im never gonna do. These projects are like some kind of never-never land, like they never got put on a regular map. Nobody comes around here on purpose. Its as if we all got lost, right in the middle of the city.

Reeve McClain, Jr.—Junebug—has decided to skip his birthday. Since ten is the age when boys in the projects are forced to join gangs or are ensnared by drug dealers, Junebug would rather remain nine. Still, he does have a birthday wish: to someday become a ships captain and sail away. So Junebug comes up with a plan to launch a flotilla, fifty glass bottles containing notes with his wish, in the hope that someone somewhere will help to make his dream come true.

Synopsis:

Reeve McLain, Jr.--Junebug--dreams that someday he and his family will move from the housing project where drugs, gangs, and guns are a part of life. Junebug's 10th birthday is coming up, and he knows the gangs will be after him to join them.

Synopsis:

A boy. A birthday. A dream of a better life far, far away.
