moreWhat happens when a baby is abandoned in the richest country in the world? Five college students are about to find out.With a theme from Dickens, a narrative technique from Faulkner, and a diverse cast of characters from the gritty, All-American city of Stockton, California, A Child Left Behind invites readers to consider the humanitarian crises right under our noses, even while CNN shows us those at our borders and around the world. Tackling a new topic with the same “inherently compelling...memorably irreverent” (Midwest Book Review) style of his previous novels, Phil Hutcheon has crafted another “hilariously inappropriate” (Kirkus Reviews) contemporary tale.
