A LIST OF CAGES by Robin Roe captures the beautiful friendship and brotherhood of high-school senior, Adam, and freshman, Julian. Previously foster brothers, the two boys rekindle their relationship when Adam begins helping out their school’s psychologist. As the friendship progresses, Adam begins to see that there is more to Julian’s new life at home than what he’s told.
Readers should know that this book covers heavy topics (a main character is physically and emotionally abused), but Roe’s story and characters manage to remain focused on the good in the world. I would give A LIST OF CAGES ten thousand stars. (Read it to find out what that means!)
