Publishers Weekly Starred Review
“Lunievicz’s impressive debut is a dark, often brutal story, balancing some of the meanest villains in recent memory with a beautifully portrayed historical New York and a movie-obsessed boy determined to overcome the hand life has dealt him,” 

Open Wounds takes readers back to WWII-era New York, following a young half-Jewish boy as he struggles to overcome his abusive childhood.

It is the emotional coming-of-age tale of Cedric “Cid” Wymann in New York City during the 1930s and 1940s after a distant relative rescues him from a bleak orphanage. “Lefty”—a shell-shocked and disfigured survivor of the horrific trenches of the First World War—offers Cid the only family love he’s ever known, and helps the 13-year-old come to terms with the violent blood-legacy of his abusive father and anti-Semitic grandmother by teaching him the art of combat with a sword.
Lunievicz makes the sights and sounds of the big city vividly real as he takes readers from the Chelsea Hotel to Millionaire’s Row, and from Central Park to opium dens.

“Part Oliver Twist, part Captain Blood, and all gritty excitement, this is the most unusual debut YA novel I’ve ever read. I loved it. A triumph!” —Robert Lipsyte, award-winning New York Times journalist and bestselling author of The Contender and Center Field, and winner of an Award for Lifetime Achievement from the American Library Association.

“The story of true friends and sworn enemies, finding yourself, and becoming whole, Open Wounds is dripping with everything that made me love reading when I was a boy: action, compassion, extreme adversity, and heroism”.—Andrew Smith, author of The Marbury Lens, a Publisher’s Weekly and American Library Association Best Books of the year.
