Children have a tendency to blame themselves for things they are not responsible for, so when Sammy's mother dies he blames himself. The author does a brilliant job of showing how he goes from an innocent, carefree boy to a tortured soul overnight.
Sammy's journey through depression and suicidal tendencies, rebellion, and drug use is heartbreaking to listen to but it makes his ultimate decision to turn his life around that much more powerful. I found myself really rooting for Sammy and I was very pleased with the way his journey ended.
The narrator, Mimi Spillane, does an admirable job with the emotional material and handles both the young Sammy and the adult Sammy equally well. Her skillful handling of the material made it even more poignant for the listener.
I highly recommend this touching novel.
