“Dunbar’s debut novel is a contemporary piece of fiction that realistically depicts PTSD from the perspective of a teenage boy. The young man’s emotional episodes are seamlessly woven into the narrative, and the language is appropriate for the story’s overall heft and emulates the vocabulary of typical young adults. The dark tone reflects the past that Gordie is struggling to overcome.”
