My sister Joanne has a baby and sometimes after school I go over there and I help her with it and she lets me have a glass of wine and then I start to think of things. And that’s why she has to leave sometimes. But I don’t see the problem so much to be honest and I tell my sister so. She says I can’t see it because I’m a retard myself is what she says when she’s not feeling so nice or just that Davey you don’t understand things very well is what she says when she’s better. I can change Dennis’s diaper when he needs it, and I know when he needs it.

Told in various voices “Gypsy Davey” is the story of a dysfunctional family and one voice that rises up like a beacon of hope from the darkness in which it finds itself. That voice belongs to twelve-year-old Davey who is a special needs child. As a child, he barely talked and nothing seemed to bother him, including his mother’s bad habit of leaving him home alone at the age of two. By the time his sister Joanne was 7 years old, she had become his surrogate mother.

Joanne and Davey’s father doesn’t live with them but pops in for visits and sends money semi regularly. He claims to love them, berates their mother for beating them, is still desperately still in love with her, and yet can’t bring himself to live at home. He has itchy feet, spending time in Florida and various motels and doesn’t want to be tied down.

“Gypsy Davey” takes us through the sadness of their lives as Joanne changes into a mini version of her mother having her own child, Dennis, by age 17 who she proceeds to abuse. Dennis is the joy of Davey’s heart and, through his ministrations of love for this poor uncared for child, readers see Davey’s growth and maturity that far exceeds every member of his family.

Recommended for readers aged 14 and older who will feel their heart warming towards Davey, as did mine. (Previously published in 1994, “Gypsy Davey” is celebrating its 10th anniversary with this 2014 version.)

Purchased for school district library. I have heard no complaints (and I would if there were any) so I would assume we are happy with the item.

Many middle-school students wish their parents would just leave them alone to make their own decisions. After reading the story of Davey's life, a student might think again. The freedom and neglect Davey lives with prevent him from doing well in school, forming good friendships and enjoying 'normal' activities. The adventures Davey experiences are interesting, funny and can help a reader to appreciate all that he/she has been given. Readers who enjoy reading about the realities of life, or think they have it tough may want to read this book. If a person liked Forest Gump, he/she will probably enjoy this novel.

Gypsy Davey was a pretty good book about a kid named Davey and how hard his life was. His dad isn't around and his mom drinks a lot and has a lot of boyfriends. His sister takes care of him mostly when he is little, but then when she is a teenager she has a baby. This story talks a lot about all the responsibilities that Davey has during his life, but it also talks about how the way he was raised helps him know how he wants to be as an adult. He wants to be a good father and have a good life.
