Beck

A powerful but disturbing story set around the era of Prohibition in America. A story about a mixed race boy, Beck, who is on a journey trying to find a place where he belongs and can be loved. A great historical coming of age novel for adults which looks at loneliness, love, family and identity but with graphic scenes of abuse and violence I'm not convinced it can be called a 'children's' book.
