“A deftly crafted coming-of-age story...that is about grief, forgiveness, and human connection.” — MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
Miles Rockefeller is a troubled young man, raised in multiple foster homes, with no patience for the folly of other people, surviving from one moment to the next by numbing himself to oblivion. But when he meets another lost teenager named Sawyer, his life is permanently altered by a senseless crime that shatters not just their own lives and that of their unknowing victim, but everyone else in their path.
A slice-of-life, coming-of-age story about an orphaned outcast named Miles Rockefeller who struggles to find redemption in the world of addiction.
“Rappaport crafts a tapestry of voices in this often moving YA/New Adult novel about a protagonist struggling to find wholeness .... Small details and pivotal moments alike serve to create a slice-of-life story that also deals with fundamental issues of identity and redemption.” — Booklife Prize 2020
“[A] very touching story filled with lonely characters all in search of the same two things: love of self and love of others.” — Viga Boland, Readers Favorite
“Time and again, as they read Reckoner, readers will recognize themselves, tuning out what is going on in their immediate vicinity while their minds meander into other times, places and spaces...and the trip is fascinating!” — Vianvi.com
