Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Searching is a sensitive and moving story of a boy growing up in Brooklyn and at a college in rural Pennsylvania during his freshman year there. The book is an engrossing study of the psychology of loss, to the very young and to the adults around him. By force of circumstances and his own nature, from a very early age Jimmy is cast as an outsider constantly searching for meaning and connection to others. This story is one of his trials and triumphs and ultimately a tribute to the human spirit. I recommend it for readers looking for something more than mere entertainment.
