Book Summary-
"When bullets fly, people die and families suffer and sometimes never recover. That’s what thirteen-year-old Mann realizes two years after his six year old brother is shot and killed. As the violence continues in his community, Mann’s grieving father takes extraordinary measures to save his remaining son’s life. Only Mann, a gifted painter who is fond of Leonardo DiVinci and riding horses, isn’t prepared for the world his father ushers him into. As a result, he learns some hard lessons and has to make some difficult choices in order to set his life right. Themes explored in this book include family and community, art, animals and healing, violence, grief and forgiveness."
