Young Carson Calley has a rare and magical gift of healing, a gift which both defines him and threatens to betray him. He lives in Hollywood motels with his alcoholic, fortune-telling mother, Juliette. She nurtures his gift, but her ways are deceptive. She feeds the boy fantastical stories to convince him of his greatness. At fourteen, Carson finally wises up to her lies and his identity is completely shattered. Juliette is too deep in her addiction to help him separate the facts from the fictions, so he looks for answers on the streets of Hollywood. There he finds Faris, a tattoo shop owner, and Casper, a cashier at a head shop. These two unlikely mentors help this troubled yet extraordinary boy find his way to the truth.

Review:

"This is a praiseworthy, poignant work." -Publishers Weekly (ABNA) "Sary succeeds in portraying teen angst without melodrama, in depicting compassion without sentimentality, and in creating a world of characters on the margins of society whose depth and complexity outshine any Hollywood hero." -Chanticleer Book Reviews

"Few novelists can arrestingly channel the voice of a neglected fourteen-year-old boy, half street urchin, half spiritual shaman, and emerge with an engaging first-person narrative that doesn't drip with sentimentality or patronize teen culture. Candi Sary can..." -Foreword Reviews Magazine

"...a thoughtful and powerful book that's engaging, entertaining and smart." -LA Books Examiner

"What this book asks is whether we can identify our calling in life and use it as a gift for others, and in Black Crow White Lie, Carson accomplishes that feat. So, as a writer, does Sary." -Daily Pilot

"...this was one of the most emotionally satisfying reads I've had all autumn. It comes strongly recommended to one and all." -Chicago Center for Literature and Photography

"Carson Calley is the narrator in this coming of age novel that will have you clamoring for another book by author Candi Sary. It's just that good!" -Minding Spot Reviews
