              Enosh runs away from home with his Uncle after the death of his grandfather. He holds the same aspirations of being somebody. What he doesn't know, is that his father had left him with his grandparents. Told his whole life that his parents had died in a car crash, he runs away fr...om home with the father that'd left him at birth. This novel is about making the best of bad situations. Through powerful symbolism and moving poetry, this story is bound to pull at your heartstrings with it's cast of fleshed out and complexly-crafted characters, all trying their best to wait out the nights of their lives, and see morning. If it ever comes. I wanna live there one day, Enosh says from his grandfather's backseat, looking out at a city skyline. Pulled out to sea by impossible towers of countless lights, only to have his grandfather wrinkle his nose at the sight, and forbid him from ever going to that impossible city in the distance. He warns his grandson that the world has a way of changing people, in ways that they never see--especially there because that is a land of lost sheep and salesman. Where you either think you know where you're going, or you're fooling someone else into that delusion for a profit.
