A beautifully wrenching story: when my hands were not frantically turning pages they were likely to be covering my mouth or my heart. It asks, where has mankind’s humanity gone? And yet it answers that it lives right beside the darkness, in pockets as small as a package of peanuts and as vast as a mother’s fortitude. Debut author Keisha Bush wrote this novel after years spent in Dakar, Senegal, but she grew up right here in Boston.
