The Pact
In the summer of 1948, young Mike Dougherty and Ricky Stedman become firm friends and begin a series of adventures in their working-class Minneapolis neighborhood. Their pleasurable passtimes are overshadowed, however, by the harsh family realitites that the boys are slow to reveal to each other. Readers will appreciate Roer's sensitive and insightful handling of the boys' efforts to understand and defend themselves against the sometimes brutal weaknesses of the adults who control their lives.
