YEAR OF THE AMPHIBIAN

IR VERDICT:

YEAR OF THE AMPHIBIAN, by Christopher Pickert, is a poignant coming-of-age story about a 14 year old boy caught between two homes–the place he’s from, with its lakes and woods, and his new home in Los Angeles with his mom and sisters, where it feels alien and hard and belonging feels elusive. Year of the Amphibian is elegantly written, with vivid, nuanced characters and a strong sense of place.
