Publisher's Description

A guy whose father ripped his heart out too. Me and you, Ishmael, we’re brothers, two dark sons. Betrayed, lost, and isolated, the perspectives of two teenage boys—modern-day Sam and biblical Ishmael—unite over millennia to illustrate the power of forgiveness. “Both lyrical and powerful, Grimes’ unusual novel is a meditation on faith and father-son relationships . . . Grimes’ commanding metaphors, authoritative style, and complex characterizations are uniquely compelling.” —Publisher’s Weekly, starred review “The elemental connections and the hop (“You made it in the end and so will I”) will speak to a wide audience.” —Booklist, starred review
