Interesting fictionalized account of an actual piece of artwork.

Excellently written from a young teen boy's perspective. I was especially delighted to find that the story is spun around the real existence of James Hampton and his actual creation that has been saved and displayed by the Smithsonian. I am thinking of buying this for my grandson.

outstanding novel. upper el/tween. about justice and struggling through grief, about acceptance and outsider art. Not at all whatever you are expecting.

I thought it was a very easy read with a lack of advanced vocabulary. Being said, the plot was very captivating and it was a good book.
