About the Author

Rex Ogle was born and raised mostly in Texas. He says, "I was one of the poorest kids at a school for the children of the wealthy. I was on the subsidized lunch program, and mocked endlessly. This is my middle school experience, but I think it's an important story to tell." A former children's book editor in New York City, Rex and his partner now enjoy much nicer weather in the Los Angeles area.

Reviews

Outstanding, gracious writing and a clear eye for the penetrating truth. A mighty portrait of poverty amid cruelty and optimism.
With candor and vivid detail, Ogle's debut captures the experience of chronic poverty in the United States...Ogle's emotional honesty pays off in the form of complex characterization and a bold, compassionate thesis.
Ogle's engrossing narrative is rich in lived experience.
Heart-wrenching, timely, and beautifully written, this is a powerful and urgent work.
