I really enjoyed this book and the only reason I didn't rate it higher is that I felt there were a few loose ends at the end.

Adam Farmer is undergoing psychoanalysis. Little by little he seems to remember things. The more he remembers he finds out that the life he thought he came from is a lie.

The author uses interesting story-telling in that some chapters follow the continuing story of Adam making a bicycle trek over a couple of days and encountering attack dogs, bullies, bad weather, and a bike thief, while on the way to meet his father to give a gift.

The other chapters are either straight narrative as Adam remembers things and there are also question and answer sessions between Adam and the analysist that is interrogating him.

The varied writing style makes the book flow by pretty fast. I was able to get through this one in a few hours.

A strange tale, woven by a young boy who feels pressured to keep running, running, running away... I almost didn't get it, even at the ending, but in the end I figured it out and was awestruck at the implications. Great summer read!
