      Lank rolled over on 
his bed and wrapped his

from the kitchen. 
Lank knew what would follow.
  Fifteen-year-old Julian 
“Lank” Burton longs for

behavior and waiting
      for his “obedience lesson” 
if he wasn’t.

submissive alcoholic mother. 
When Lank can take no more,
      he runs away. Lank finds 
himself in a secluded alley 
and meets General, an
      older gentleman who teaches 
him how to survive on the 
streets. But General teaches 
him a lot more. He helps 
Lank work through his feelings 
of unworthiness and becomes 
the good father figure that 
Lank never had. Lank realizes how
God put people in his 
ife to draw him closer 
to God. This is especially
 evident with the surprise ending.

      REVIEW

The Alley Kid is a tremendously

An incredible book." ~~
