A beautiful story of finding forgiveness and love.
— RABBI SHERRE HIRSCH author of We Plan, God Laughs
A riveting debut! I fell in love with this poignant, often hilarious yet deeply serious story of an emotionally wounded 8-year old, Mark, whose exceptional gift for conjuring up imaginary worlds becomes a means of coping with his father’s terrifying mood swings and family’s craziness. When young Mark forms an unusual friendship with a wealthy, eccentric old man in the neighborhood, the story accelerates to an explosive and truly fabulous ending.
