The author of Mahtab's Story and the author of The Island team up to bring young readers another powerful social justice-related work—an inspiring, thought-provoking picture book about finding one's way in the world "You must do as you're told." "Let the army make you a man." "Your country needs your vote." As the voices in his life crowd in on him, Thomas looks for another way, refusing to conform to the expectations and demands of family and community. A loner, Thomas refuses to feel lonely, an inspiring choice in this masterful tale of questioning authority and resisting oppression. Powerful illustrations and a spare text make a parable of Thomas's journey, which reflects the courage we all need to find our passion and be ourselves.
