Writes Minnis: “This collection of nine short stories center around abandoned children stuck inside adult bodies, bi-racial half-siblings, immigrant tales, the glamour of Hollywood, and orphans raised by aunts. Stapleton gives the reader tales of hope, sorrow and mourning that make us all think about what it truly means to be American.”
