12 year-old Aaron Broom, barely surviving St. Louis during The Depression, sees his father taken into police custody as a witness to a jewelry store robbery. With no resources, a police-secured apartment and no way to event visit his father, Aaron relies on Auggie, the street-smart newsboy, and other dubious characters to gather key information. Sleeping in a borrowed hammock in a homeless camp, Aaron approaches a sympathetic lawyer. Immediately engaging, this gem of Hotchner's vividly narrates Aaron's escapades and close calls. In a light, delectable manner, so natural to this storyteller supreme!
