Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How much do you have to give up to find yourself?

When Pete first sets eyes on the Man, he's convinced he's an ax murderer. But at the revival meeting, Pete discovers that the Man is actually a savior of souls, and Pete has been waiting all his life to be saved.

It's not something Pete's parents can understand. Certainly his best friend, Rufus, an avowed atheist, doesn't understand. But Pete knows he can't imagine life without the Man. So when the Man invites Pete to join him on his mission, how can Pete say no — even if it means leaving behind everything he's ever loved?

Synopsis:

A Newbery Award Nominee

An ALA Best Book for Young Adults

Pete slipped right out of the world he'd shared with his parents, and, for a time, none of them knew it. After all, Pete was still 13, mowing lawns, hanging around with his best friend, Rufus. Who would have known? James W. Carson, for one. From the moment their eyes met along the 19-21 bypass, Peter Cassidy was his. The Man had hitchhiked to town like some legendary hero, a lasso of words spinning about him, drawing Pete and many others in tight.

Available only in The Literacy Bridge 5.
