It's the story of Jeremy Dance, street name, Lil J. He's gotten wrapped up in the shooting of a cop, and as he tries to run away and hide himself in an abandoned building, he discovers Kelly, a strange man who just wants to talk with him. Kelly's TV plays back Lil J's life...any scene from any part, and it shows Lil J his future--perched on the top of a building with a gun to his head.
This book is really fast read, and expertly told. The structure, as in the only other novel of Myers' I've read, Monster, is really interesting. He tells an intricately woven tale full of flashbacks and asides that eventually come to a head. Check a future issue of Estella's Revenge for a full review.
Embarking on Hour 9, I'm not sure what I want to read. I might go back to Wondrous Strange, or I might break into Sloane Crosley's book of essays, I Was Told There'd Be Cake!. I'll report in later to tell the tale!
I think it's time to make some brownies or comment on others' blogs. My eyes need a break!
