Marvel and a Wonder by Joe Meno

I am so fortunate to have received Marvel and a Wonder as an Early Reviewer.

A chicken farmer from Indiana attempts to raise his teenage grandson in this story of another American family reorganized by methamphetamine. The grandfather is forced to deal with his racist issues dating back to his time as an MP in the Korean War, because his grandson is half-black. The mysterious inheritance of a white race horse begins to bridge the generation gap between the two, but is stolen, setting the grandfather and grandson off on a race to reclaim it.

At the end of the book, the pure beauty of the story made me cry. I will definitely be reading more from Joe Meno.
