Publisher's Summary

A beautifully voiced debut captures an intimate story of change and acceptance.

Twelve-year-old Davis lives in an old brownstone with his mother and grandmother in Brooklyn. He loves people-watching in Prospect Park, visiting his mom in the bakery she owns, and listening to the biggest operas he can find as he walks everywhere.

But Davis is having a difficult summer. As questions of sexuality begin to enter his mind, he worries people don't see him as anything other than "husky". To make matters worse, his best girlfriends are starting to hang out with mean girls and popular boys. Davis is equally concerned about the distance forming between him and his single mother as she begins dating again, and about his changing relationship with his amusingly loud Irish grandmother, Nanny.

Ultimately, Davis learns to see himself outside of his one defining adjective. He's a kid with unique interests, admirable qualities, and people who will love him no matter what changes life brings about.

    Story
    "Outstanding, truly exceptional storytelling"
    If you could sum up Husky in three words, what would they be?

    Relatable, moving and perfect.


    What other book might you compare Husky to and why?

    I hope the author takes this as the compliment I intend but I would say a sort of mash up of "The Curious Incident in the Dog in the Nighttime" with "Me Talk Pretty One Day". The humor and struggle of feeling like an outsider coalescing in a concise and poignant way.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    "Bread is a process."


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I only stopped because I was interrupted.

    Story
    "A book for every parent and pre-teen."

    The imagery and story structure are masterfully portrayed in this hilarious and heart-wrenching novel. I was immediately transported to my own childhood and remembered every little moment that seemed to be the end of the world at the time. "Husky" paints the picture of perseverance and patience as we each struggle, in our own ways, to be our own unique selves.
