Arthur Street is a quiet place, but its residents struggle with ghosts and nightmares: the baggage of events that haunt them every day. When Joseph Davidson begins to sketch neighbor and former teacher Tom Leyton as part of a school art assignment, what starts as two isolated people who struggle with their fears becomes a journey toward opening and friendship. This young adult novel invites readers to discover the world as Joseph sees it.

This is a well-written story. It offers stories about how your life experiences affect your perspective. At times I found it hard to keep going, at others, hard to put down. In the end, I felt like I had finished an English class assignment, as this is the kind of book (like the classic lines of poetry it quotes) that you use for discussion and dissecting.
