Young German immigrant Erik Schroder invents an identity around which he fashions an imaginary life. During a custody dispute, he flees to New England with his young daughter, Meadow, taking her on an ill-advised road trip and making a series of poor decisions. A multilayered novel about transformation and acknowledging one's own painful truth, Schroder is narrated by a flawed but profoundly human protagonist. ~ Reviewed by Amy Palmer
