Longo threads her own style of blunt, honest humor throughout this dark, dramatic work, showing that life can be funny and tragic at the same time, and adding colorful nuances that punctuate the realities in the poor side of town. The roller coaster of first love, the uncertainty of defining oneself, and the struggles against small-minded bullies unaware of their own shortcomings skillfully accentuate this engaging family drama.
Like so many of us, Curtis Price seeks to escape the confines of his financially strapped situation and the personal anchors that weigh him down, desperately trying to make sense of the world he’s growing into. He is resilient and he is determined, but the unexpected could upend everything he's worked so hard to achieve. Will his dreams fade into the drab alleys and smoky bars of Osprey Falls, or will he prevail and attain escape velocity?
