Editorial Reviews

Review

"Intrigue, romance and fun leaven this tale of a good-hearted runaway boy beginning to find his way in the world. This likable protagonist makes for a fine introduction to an era before movies and radio caused the Chautauqua to fade away." (Kirkus Reviews 2012-03-15)

"Readers will find the story of the Chautauqua entertaining." (School Library Journal 2012-04-01)

"This first-person account by a good-hearted hero is the perfect guide through a charming and little-known piece of Americana. The style is plainsong poetry, and the story both evocative and heartrending. Highly recommended." (Historical Novel Society 2012-05-01)

"Huser's writing style is simple with a vocabulary that is interesting without being too challenging. This piece of historical fiction vividly captures 1920s America through the heartwarming story of a young man who has lost everything...I would definitely recommend this book to both middle school and high school aged teens." (Southwest Ohio and Neighboring Libraries (SWON) 2012-06-25)
