Summary
When four-year-old Bo is orphaned in the car accident that kills his mother, he becomes the focus of a fierce custody struggle between his two sets of very different grandparents. As the grownups play out their secret desires, hidden resentments, and stubborn self-righteousness, Bo finds himself at the mercy of a fallible adult world. With a child's perfect but partial understanding, he flees into himself--away from the sea of strangers--where he inhabits as eerie inner landscape filled with the dreamlike intensity unique to the imagination of a child
Summary
The world of "make believe" is where 4 year old Bo choose to live after the death of his parents and the custody battles between two sets of grandparents- one black and one white
