Description
Eleven-year-old Blacky Brown reveals to Chicago's Children's Services that he has been sexually abused by his mother's boyfriend and is released into his mother's custody. Thus begins an alternately harrowing and hopeful story of a brave boy's attempts to come to grips with a grim reality. Blacky is helped at first by a classmate, Mary Jane, who has also been ostracized, and then by the gun that he buys easily from his sister's boyfriend.
