Praise
"A wrenching tour de force despite America's overly symbolic name, it is a work of sublime humanity."
"This is a dramatic and heart-tugging story, all the more appealing for its rescue-fantasy satisfactions....this is just right for readers drawn to gripping tales of recovery."
From the Publisher
Annotation A 15-year-old boy named America, in the hospital after a suicide attempt, reluctantly recounts his past in his therapy sessions with Dr. B. Born to a crack-addicted mother, America was raised by Mrs. Harper, nanny of the wealthy foster family that gave up on him. Just before entering kindergarten, America visits his birth mother, who abandons him once again. He spends the next few years on the streets, before finding his way back to Mrs. Harper. But more trouble is in store for this bright and spirited child. A New York Times Notable Book for 2002.
Editors Note Having been lost "in the system" for years, America wonders what his purpose is in this world and hopes that a kind doctor at Ridgeway Hospital will take the time to give him some answers to a very confusing life. Reprint.
