Twelve-year-old David has family problems. He suspects that his brother is a junkie. His mother feels the strain of trying to create a community shelter for the homeless in the face of opposition, including some in her own home from David's mentally unstable father. David's summer is complicated further by the mysterious Mr. Moses, who teaches David about the power of dreams. Peter Francis James does a great job portraying an African-American adolescent. His voice is rich, reflective, and melodic. The music at the end of each tape side adds a touch of ambience. Myers and James give listeners a treat--straight from 145th Street. J.M.S.
