I read this after reading "Tis", but I believe this one was written first. It's a similar type of writing to "Tis", but the child is a bit more innocent, and the family's not as desperate. It's interesting in that it puts you into the child's mind and way of thinking.

Engaging and somewhat difficult, on a viceral level, to read about the cruelties of childhood and poverty. Told in an authentic Irish voice.

Not a Novel
-------------------------
An Irish kid at 10. He's a nasty piece of work, and we're supposed to be sad for him when his parents separate.

It's one vignette after another about childhood. It's not badly written, but it's not a novel.
