About This Book
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit,
not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
From The Prophet “On Children”
by Kahlil Gibran
Imagine Huckleberry Finn, sold and subsequently adopted at birth through an underground market, waking up in an urban world of wealth, a dysfunctional family, ROTC prep schools and trussed in a stubborn and unforgiving religion. Add to this an illicit love story, a mystery to resolve, a psychological thriller, and Victoria, an indomitable alter ego who abducts Huckleberry only to set him free in one of the cleverest escape adventures of all time.
Told with a blistering pace, absolute unpredictability, a movie like read, and a frugality of words unmatched, this book can be worn in your hip pocket until read on the way to work.
