Publisher's Summary

From the Newbery Award-winning author of Across Five Aprils and Up a Road Slowly comes a tale of a brave young man’s struggle to find his own strength during the Great Depression.
In 1932, Americans’ dreams were simple: a job, food to eat, a place to sleep, and shoes without holes. But for millions of people these simple needs were nothing more than dreams. When he was just 15 years old, Josh had to make his own way through a country of angry and frightened people. This is the story of his struggle to find a life for himself during those turbulent times.

Dull, Lukewarm, and Mediocre <br /><br />

The narration was pretty good but the story still fell flat despite this buttress. The premise of the book had so much promise but the author did not succeed past something perhaps a 10th grader could have written. Missing were the elements of a good book: characterization, use of vocabulary, memorable scenes, creativity, and originality to name a few. Wasted my time. I didn't hate it but it didn't add to my time spent either.

Excellent!

I love this book. Listened in the car. Beautiful story, beautifully read. Couldn't wait to get to the next "aural" page.
