About this title


The author recounts his childhood in the racially divided Cincinnati of the fifties, where his parents struggled to cope with racism and where he suffered a sexual assault at the age of eight that put an end to his innocence. Tour. IP.


Every child deserves the joy and play of childhood, yet many children have that right taken from them by the brutality of an adult's sexual assault. Little Roundhead is one such child. His father's attitude makes things even worse. Yet this boy's courage and seventh sense--his sense of wonder--carry him beyond the guilt and the blame. He learns the lesson that many never discover: that the strength and humor to survive and to grow lies within himself. A brave story.
