"Most of us understand the disappointment of a book that promises 'laugh out loud' moments then fails to deliver. This book not only delivers but does so in almost a machine gun fashion - over and over again before you have the chance to recover from the previous," wrote someone who previously was not a fan of historical fiction. "As trite as it sounds, I picked up Book One and couldn't put it down. I eagerly pushed through the rest of the books and the collection of short stories in less than a week."
This Pulitzer Prize winner for Fiction is an intense and dramatic ride, great for anyone who loves a long a winding narrative they can escape into. The protagonist is a 13-year-old boy who survives an accident that kills his mother.

"This book is very tightly written, drips with suspense throughout, and rings authentic with modern Los Angeles," wrote a fan. "As each chapter ends, I’m immediately drawn into continuing on to the next."
