A tale of two very different worlds, both shattered by the loss of loved ones. Tragic, comic and full of hope, thanks to a dog called Boy.

The kennel has been JCs home ever since his new adoptive father locked him inside. For hours on end, JC sits and tells his dog Boy how he came to this country: his family; the orphanage and the Haitian earthquake that swept everything away.

When his adoptive mother Melanie rescues him, life starts to feel normal again. Until JC does something bad, something that upset his new father so much that he and Boy are banished to the kennel. But as his new father gets sicker, JC realizes they have to find a way out. And so begins a stunning story of a boy, a dog and their journey to freedom.A tale of two very different worlds, both shattered by the loss of loved ones. Tragic, comic, and full of hope, thanks to a dog called Boy.Uniquely written, full of personality, and politically charged. SWAN BOY has the power to heal individuals who have faced similar circumstances and to evoke change, especially in those who stand by passively without intervening. SWAN BOY is the wakeup call many need, delivered in the nicest way possible. A moving story about grief, resilience and courage.
