Herein is the story of a boy Rusty whose heartstrings are stretched taut with happiness, fright, sorrow, shame and physical pain while budding to adulthood. Rusty's often self inflicted predicaments are conveyed in hindsight with hilarious jocularity while the urgency of their real occurrence in time are confessed with honest clarity so profuse it's impossible not to become entangled in Rusty's wheeling emotions. The joy and innocence of Rusty's spirited childhood is slowly eroded by deceit, misunderstandings, mistakes and heartbreak, yet Rusty rushes energetically forward while stumbling into brief rations of excitement and love for fuel. It arduously teaches Rusty to try to look at life with a little bit of levity and be convinced that another good time is bound to come sooner or later. The book shows the things we often work for the hardest sometimes become what we wanted least, and during such work we discover the things we just happen to get are of what sweet dreams are made.
