This is a great book that, if you happen to have an afternoon to kill, you can read right in the bookstore.  A graphic novel written and illustrated by David Small, Stitches is written from the perspective of a boy growing up without the love of his parents--and due to a surgery to his throat--without a voice.  Seeking refuge in his art, the young protagonist eventually runs away at sixteen and is able to find happiness.  Very simply constructed, Stitches offers a window into a boy's small, sad world and captures frame by frame his liberation from it.
