This reworked memoir from popular YA author Gary Paulsen details a young man who runs away from alcoholic parents, works as a migrant laborer, joins a carnival, and falls in love. After a parent complained about “incest, sexually explicit, violence” as issues, the book was recataloged from juvenile to YA nonfiction at an Oregon public library.
