This is another read from the National Book Award finalist list. I felt like the life of Sequoyah, a teenaged foster boy, is well represented in how he views the world and interacts with others. The pacing of the book didn't work as well for me, as it tends to race through really important moments. There is a lot of violence alongside what I might call disassociation, which seems about right.

Thanks to the publisher for providing a review copy through NetGalley.

Michael Succinct review, Jenny! Great point about the uneven pacing.
