Authenticity and a rhythmic prose propel Jackson's debut novel, a story of a mother and son living in an unexpectedly rough neighborhood in Portland, OR—where Jackson grew up. The author's young narrator, Champ, sells crack to survive while his mother, Grace, is fresh out of a treatment program and trying to stay clean.
