Eddie Proffit becomes mute after his father and best friend die in separate accidents. The local minister wants to baptize Eddie to save him from damnation while at the same time lashing out against a book assigned by the school librarian for her Really Modern Literature class. Crutcher appears in the book as the banned author of this assigned book. The book’s focus on personal freedoms will appeal to high school students.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2006-2007)
