"A powerful story of children left homeless after the Russian Revolution," declared PW, reviewing this award-winner by the gifted poet and author. Holman's novel is rooted in actual events and, through 12-year-old Alex, the reader experiences the tragedy of uncared-for boys and girls in the aftermath of war.
