Summary An inquisitive young boy who lives with his mother and younger sister in a rough housing project in New Haven, Connecticut, approaches his tenth birthday with a mixture of anticipation and worry. Ten-year-old Reeve McClain, Jr.-Junebug-shuns the gangs and drug dealers who inhabit the projects where he lives, and dreams instead of being a ship's captain and sailing away. Then Junebug's mother gets a job offer that would mean a move-but the decision is not as easy as it seems.
