This novel starts out fast and sharp and doesn't slow down until it has run its course. Young Daniel Musgrove is out of place in his new Mississippi home; as a self-proclaimed Yankee, he's always a step or two apart from his new peer group at school. Jeff Woodman's narration is reminiscent of the TV show "The Wonder Years." Woodman incorporates youthful exuberance with a touch of nostalgic wisdom as his voice brings this novel to life. Author and narrator blend humor and humanity without any touch of caricature. In the early 1970s, Daniel sits awkwardly in the front row of the Civil Rights Movement in America, and his engaging, thoughtful observations are riveting.
