    1. I am so ashamed of myself for not getting to this book earlier! I received a pre-publication of this book from Mr. Pawlik last spring, and just got to reading it today. So, to Mr. Pawlik, I apologize.

    2. 7/10.It's like a redeeming Stand By Me. It gets you in the heart. He's such a talented writer, it's a pity he didn't set out to write this as a novella as it could have been even more powerful.
