Synopsis: A small boy is saddened and confused by the suicide of a teenage neighbor he has admired.

From School Library Journal: Grade 4 Up-In a bleak, first-person narration, a young boy tells about a friendless teenager whom he has watched from a distance. He admires the young man for his skill at basketball and his kindness to animals. The boy sees him as an outsider, ostracized by his peers. He comes close to reaching out to speak to him, but never does. One night, he is wakened by the sound of an ambulance and the sight of neighbors, "looking at you, lying there on the ground, so still," and shaking their heads in sorrow and disbelief. Greenberg's oil paintings are purposely somber in tone, moving from dark to light as the narrator gains insight and, in the only note of hope in a relentlessly heavy book, is finally pictured as part of a group playing basketball. Many of the illustrations have an unfinished look, as devoid of detail as is the narrator's knowledge of the boy he watches. It is never clearly stated, except in the CIP data, that the death is a suicide, but it is likely that young people will infer that he jumped from the roof of his city apartment building. The narrator himself lives in a sad world of resignation to his father's neglect, of loneliness as an outsider in a new neighborhood, and of regret over the lost opportunity to befriend the young man who so clearly mirrors his own isolation. Indeed, readers never know his name. This important book, which properly raises more questions than it answers, will be best used by adults with young people to evoke discussion and hopefully bring an awareness and understanding of those who are excluded by their peers.
