From the Publisher:
You try not to think. You try not to imagine, but then those cracks pop up, and these flashes squeeze right through. At first, some of it's not too bad, and you get stupid, maybe even wanting a little more, but then you pull yourself together, knowing what all is likely going to ooze out if you're not careful....

Fifteen-year-old America has been nowhere, has been nobody. Separated from his foster mother. A runaway. A patient. Without love. Without hope. And, eventually, without the will to live.

Until Dr. B. steps in. To listen. To explore. And to find within America both the story and the boy who are lost.America, a not-black, not-white, not-anything teenage boy who has spent many years in institutions for disturbed, antisocial behavior, tries to piece his life together.

Praise

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

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