Ganahl's debut coming-of-age historical fiction novel about growing up in St. Louis in 1963. The novel is full of funny stories that are full of St. Louis memories. After Mickey and his friends escape the nuns, the boys spend their summer playing baseball, mumblety-peg, sleeping out, crawling through sewers, going to the drive-in and avoiding the bullies that want to take their money. It’s like eating a bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy. It’s comfort food.
