Publishers Weekly says:
“Whereas the title suggests a raunchy learn, this wealthy and soulful novel is definitely a reasonably well-done bildungsroman [coming-of-age story] steeped in wanderlust and whimsy that at occasions recollects The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and at others a tamer On the Highway. The story begins in 1936 as 19-year-old Tobias is thumbing his manner from Remus, Mich., to his uncle’s farm in Glen Rose, Tex., to discover a hidden bag of cash, after his father, a Baptist pastor, drunkenly slams his automobile into the church and is faraway from the parsonage. The creator does a wonderful job in making well-charted territory (using the rails; scavenged campfire meals below the stars) appear vibrant and new. Snippets of scripture, Southern spirituals, and folks ballads lend context and taste to the textual content. Most spectacular are the jangly dialogue and the characters’ distinctive voices, that are genuine and earthy however not remotely hoary. When Tobias lastly arrives at his uncle’s, the surprises that await him are greater than sufficient to maintain his–and readers’–interests piqued.” (Overview from the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award)Used Ebook in Good Situation
