In this beautifully imaginative collection young people attempt to negotiate the often surreal terrain of childhood and adolescence where family friends clergy and teachers often pose a threat instead of providing safe harbor At the heart of the collection is the relationship between the meek narrator his best friend alpha male Clip and the near feral Rogerbut there are also agoraphobic mothers gorgeous babysitters from New Zealand paranoid stoned veterans and deeply sad older sisters Ennis has crafted modern day captivity narratives set not at some remote fort but in the neighborhoods of Philadelphia Using cinematic imagery and deft characterization Ennis explores how we often feel confined and yet find ourselves in places we least expect
