Oskaloosa Moon. Gary Sutton. 2011. ISBN 9780975962534.  A piece of very disturbing fiction that I read in one sitting. The story of a  intelligent young boy with a disfigured face who received the butt end of bigotry and ignorance in a small town from many folks and the help of a few. He created a life despite this and did not let go his optimistic (and simplistic) view of life through much of it. The writing is clear, compact and compelling. Very enjoyable and human.
