The Lesser Blessed
Larry Sole is a Tlicho Indian growing up in the small northern town of Fort Simmer. At sixteen, he loves heavy metal, the North and Juliet Hope, the high school slut.
Skinny as spaghetti, nervy and self-deprecating, Larry is an appealing mixture of bravado and vulnerability. But his present is terrorized by a dark mystery and memories of an accident that almost killed him. It is through his friendship with Johnny, a new kid in town, and his lust for Juliet, that Larry starts to face his past—and his future.
