The Charlatan’s Boy by Jonathan Rogers is a unique piece of fiction.
Grady is a rather homely looking boy who travels from village to village with a con man named Floyd. Grady can never remember a time before Floyd. He has no idea how he and Floyd came to be together and when asked, Floyd gives a different answer every time.
Times aren’t good for Grady and Floyd. Villagers don’t fall for the same scams anymore and Grady is starting to wonder what it would be like to live in a real home, where people know you. He’s also wondering what it would be like to live as an honest person.
In the meantime, Floyd is convinced that he has come up the perfect scam.
Rogers has written a very creative book. I look forward to reading his other works.
I received this book from Waterbook Press as part of their Books for Bloggers program in exchange for a book review. I was not required to write a positive review.
