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.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"A wrenching tour de force despite America's overly symbolic name, it is a work of sublime humanity." 12/01/2001

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"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." - Deborah Stevenson March 2002
