Argh This book is so real, so painful, so sad, and ultimately beautiful As I read it, I thought it was just a story of a 13 year old boy who missed his parents In the end it turned out to be a piece of art about human emotion and frailty. A less fantastical, angstier book than Charlotte Doyle, this Avi y a novel concerns two kids with different ways of disguising the truth about their family lives It was a very powerful book for me in jr high. What a strange book Deals with broken marriages that break apart and that insist on staying together, and the damage that comes to the children in those marriages.
