This is the first of Josh Sheldon's books that I have read. I found in fascinating and deeply moving. The story is about Yew, and how his individuality and spirit are crushed as a child. This process is described with well placed explanations from psychology and philosophy; The child fights a losing battle to retain his true self which builds to a heartbreaking conclusion . Yew's adult life continues without joy or true purpose, until he reaches 'rock bottom' and finds a way to recover the child that was lost along the way. The imaginative and yet strangely realistic description of his 'Little Voice' was so compelling I was unable to put the book down. Truly a message for out time and our society.
