Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The New York Times

This meticulous portrait of two boys in a Chicago housing project shows how much heroism is required to survive, let alone escape. Kotlowitz's story informs the heart.

San Francisco Chronicle

Amid the darkness and ever-present despair, Kotlowitz beautifully captures the moments of brightness and hope. Easily could become the 1990s equivalent of Michael Harrington's The Other America.

Synopsis:

This bestseller is the moving and powerful account of two remarkable boys struggling to survive in Chicago's Henry Horner Homes. "An extraordinary glimpse into the lives of those struggling for survival and dignity in inner-city America".--Chicago Sun-Times.
