Iggy Corso lives in the projects with a stoned father and an addict mother who is AWOL again, but, amazingly, he uses no drugs, has no self-pity, and lives on hope. Suspended . . . again . . . he makes a plan to change people's opinions of him, get back in school, and make a better life. Stephen Hoye's Iggy speaks with precise enunciation, never employing contractions, like a person who knows he is not too smart but is trying hard to make sense of the world. But Iggy is an 18-year-old high school freshman from the projects of New York City, and Hoye uses the accent of a college graduate. In spite of this disparity, the powerful story, and Iggy himself, will haunt you long after the last syllable fades. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
