This compelling story is narrated by a nine-year-old hero who valiantly tries to hold his little family together as his mother becomes more and more unstable. Lawrence has fascinations appropriate for his age - Roman emperors (I learned quite a bit about Nero from him), outer space and his hamster. Convincingly childlike, he also steps up to the challenges thrust upon him. I couldn’t turn away from the story as I rooted for this charming boy on that fascinating edge of childhood, just before adolescence plunges him into a more adult and less trusting worldview.

intriguing, though maybe a little simplistic
