The seamless juxtaposition of faith and pain, innocence and guilt, allows Red Hook Summer to transcend Lee's occasional bombastic moments and become a strong examination of internal suffering. - Slant Magazine
Red Hook Summer tells the story of Flik Royale, a sullen young boy with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse, in the housing projects of Red Hook. Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ.
Between his grandfather's constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik's summer appears to be a total disaster--until he meets Chazz Morningstar, a pretty girl his age, who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn. Through her love and the love of his grandfather, Flik begins to realize that the world is a lot bigger, and perhaps a lot better than he'd ever imagined.
