This book is a great example of why I love books set in the South, and Grisham does a marvelous job of capturing a specific time and place. With nary a lawyer or courtroom in sight, Grisham delves into this coming-of-age tale with passionate enthusiasm. Luke Chandler is a precocious, wholly lovable young narrator whose voice rings authentic and true.
