Langdon HammerMotion's memoir unlocks the 17-year-old's mind and sets the past stored there on the page. Motion creates a point of view that combines the boy's powers of acute sensory and psychological observation with the adult writer's rhetorical tact and verbal precision. The writing that results is superbly clear, intimate and evocative…The power of this sad, attractively modest memoir comes in his resistance, which can only fail, to the demand that he grow up.
—The New York Times
