Product Details


“Mary Lou Hall’s Wirewalker is a daring leap into magnificence. This is storytelling at its bravest and most beautiful. Seeing life through Clarence Feather’s eyes, feeling it through his wounded, magical heart, I fell in love with the world all over again. Ms. Hall reminded me that when there’s no way out, and not even a way through, there’s always a way in. The gateway and the treasure are one and the same: compassion, and Mary Lou Hall’s is as boundless as her talent. Wirewalker tore me up and healed me too.  It’s a call to resurrection for anyone who has forgotten how to hope.” 
—Paul Griffin, critically acclaimed author of Stay with Me and Burning Blue

“Sometimes starting high school, dealing with your family, and surviving the neighborhood takes the strength of a superhero, but when there are no Batmen or Spider-Men, it takes a real life superhero like Clarence Feather to keep it all from falling apart. Wirewalker beautifully and powerfully reminds us that when navigating a world that offers no good choices, a heart that’s good and true can still save the day.”
—Brendan Kiely, coauthor of the Coretta Scott King Author Honor Award–winning All American Boys and author of The Last True Love Story

“Debut novelist Hall paces her story patiently, allowing each questionable decision Clarence makes to increase the dramatic tension, while quietly raising the stakes for the secondary cast—human and canine—as well. There’s grit and challenging honesty here to serve readers who are not quite ready for full-out Urban Lit.” —BCCB

“The gritty subject matter of the novel should captivate readers” —Booklist
