Good Book, Misleading Title
I would just like to add, for the sake of sparing readers from retaining misinformation, that the phrase 'The Real McKoy' was not inspired by Kid McKoy. Elijah McKoy's lubricating cup, which he invented in the mid 1800s, is the true inspiration of the phrase which was used in print years before the birth of Kid McKoy.Was this review helpful?

Darin Strauss has done it again!
Beautifully writen and highly imaginative. I normally am not a fan of historical fiction, but I loved every page of The Real McCoy! The twist with the narrator was especially effective. If you liked Cheng and Eng, I would definitely recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
