Narrator Josh Bloomberg provides a thought-provoking reading of this exploration of race relations, the "white savior" complex, and the depth of family bonds. After being left alone by a crack-addicted mother, Anton breaks out of the house, enters foster care, and is then adopted by the Colemans, a prominent political family. Groomed for a life of ambition and high achievement by his adoptive father, Anton is poised to reach new heights in his career when he unexpectedly receives a letter from his birth mother that throws his new life into question. Bloomberg's narration immerses the listener in the story by capturing Anton's accent and youthful hesitancy, Anton's mother's Georgia accent, and the adoptive family's cool reserve and Northeastern accent.
