Captivating, simple story about Conroy's youth. Not the usual coming-of-age, but also not full of narrative tricks. I disagree--this is not 'Catcher in the Rye' with a different title. Cynicism can't touch this book. It's sincere without being overly earnest or naive.

I was assigned this book in my freshman english class. My question to you is, how many times will they have us read Catcher in the Rye with a different title. Frank Conroys descriptions are considerably lacking. I did not enjoy this book at all.
