's review

Both prompted and illustrated by a collection of period photographs, this is a short book, but one with a lot of depth to it. It's a skillful depiction of the loss of innocence from the point of view of the one who loses it. Perhaps some of the characters lacked depth; but then perhaps that fits with the restriction implied by having a child as narrator.
