I could not put this book down. I felt as if I was on the journey with Sonny through his childhood into adulthood to find his father. Pam has given this book great life in her details of his ups and downs with humor and grace. Proud "Riverview Rat"

Not only did I learn a lot while reading this book, I also enjoyed getting to know Sonny. My heart went out to him many times as he searched for his dad. How many of us have ran into our mother and had to worry if she would know us? Thank God for strangers, how different his life could have been. Mostly I enjoyed sharing Sonny's thoughts, and how he worked his way in and out of situations.

From the start, the author cast me into the story. That as a young boy Sonny didn't have the answers, but had to reason until he found one that made sense. Growing up in the street means he had to stay focused; had to second-guess people motives, which he learned to turn around so they would step up and claim as their own. Throughout the book, Sonny never lost his imagination; that the young spirit he possessed remained just below the surface. Most of all I liked the pace of the book, and my travels through time. I found myself living the story. Most reads of this period are so depressing, but the author found a way to let us know that all was not "gloom and doom." People found ways to make do, to still have a life; move over Steinbeck, times were tough, but there was another side to this era. For sure, this is a multi-read book!
