Review by Levi Pierce.
This is a great book about the life and troubles of Perry T. Cook, who was born in jail, and that is his home. That all changes when the warden makes him leave and live at a foster home, away from his only family, his mother.
I love the fact that the characters are really human and make you feel sympathetic. It has a lot of clever writing in it. I recommend it for fifth and sixth graders.
