Imagine Huckleberry Fin, sold and subsequently adopted at birth through an underground market, waking up in an urban world of wealth, a dysfunctional family, ROTC prep schools and trussed in a stubborn and unforgiving religion. Add to this an illicit love story, a mystery to resolve, a psychological thriller, and Victoria, an indomitable alter ego who abducts Huckleberry only to set him free in one of the cleverest escape adventures of all time. Told with blistering pace, absolute unpredictability, a movie like read, and a frugality or words unmatched, this book can be worn in your hip pocket until read on the way to work.
