As a middle grades teacher I have worked with underprivileged children who suffered through life experiences that left them with few skills needed for acceptable interaction in a normal environment. I’ve seen some of these kids pull themselves out of miserable circumstances. With the help of mental health professionals, attention from dedicated teachers, and other concerned adults, and most essentially the support of their peers, a few find their own way home to themselves and develop into fully functioning adults. Sadly, that is seldom the case.
The development of Cyril’s character is a sensitive study of a mind stunted by neglect. We view the world through his eyes and experience relationships through his internal viewfinder. He finds support from the pack of scruffy dogs who, one by one, have found their way into his care. Intellectual stimulation comes from precious books he has stumbled across adding color and dimension to Cyril’s otherwise flat world. Ms. Alexi creates a space for us in Cryil’s mind, giving us an understanding of his world not likely possible for one who has not dealt with such wounded souls firsthand.
The main character grows in experience and we are delighted to meet again old friends from Sara Alexi’s Greek Village Series. As we witness the deepening of Aaman and Saabira’s relationship while they adjust to new surroundings, we see how they are able to extend the patience and kindness felt within their family to their neighbor Cyril.
I am impressed by the risk-taking of both the characters and author in creating this story of hope, love, and unshakable friendship. Once more I have been surprised and delighted by Sara Alexi’s story-telling skill.
