A List of Cages by Robin Roe
Oh my goodness! Such a sad and horrible, yet at the same time great book! I read it all in a few hours today. I couldn't put it down. The story is told alternately by 14 year old Julian and 18 year old Adam. Many serious issues are dealt with, death, abuse, foster care, adhd, dyslexia, bullying, but there are also wonderful friendships and love. Years earlier, after his parents died, Julian lived with Adam and his mother who provided a foster home for him. Now, living with his uncle, Julian's life is quite different. The relationships and friendships between Adam and his friends and Julian are wonderful and Julian's uncle is evil and horrible and the story will make you cry. It is an unforgettable story.
