Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a story of a 17-year-old, Joseph Askew, growing up on the rough streets of Chicago's Uptown neighborhood. Raised in a religious commune, Joseph is at first shielded from the realities beyond the commune's walls. But when his parents are forced by the church to transfer to another state, he runs away and finds himself adrift: among the transvestites, prostitutes, and small-change thieves that call Uptown home. Eventually, Joseph is taken in by an elderly albino, a man dedicated to sheltering runaways, but his troubles are just beginning. As Joseph tries to gather the pieces of his life and create something of his own, he discovers how difficult it is to find one's place in the world.
