Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a family always on the move, popularity and the ability to fit in quickly are vital to Brent Bishops high school survival. When he blows his chances with the girl of his dreams in front of everyone, hes devastated. Brent tries to end it all in a fatal car crash, but instead he finds an unlikely beginning. Hes sent on a journey of repentance—a cross-country trip building whirligigs. His wind toys are found by people in need: a Maine schoolgirl yearning for her first love, a Miami street-sweeper desperate for peace and quiet, a kid in Washington who just wants to play baseball, and a San Diego teenager dealing with loss. Brents whirligigs bring hope to others, but will they be able to heal the wounds deep inside himself?

Synopsis:

Sixteen-year-old Brent Bishop is sent on an unusual journey of repentance--building wind toys across the land--after he inadvertently causes the death of a young woman. A "New York Times" Notable Book of the Year and a YALSA Best Book for Young Adults.

Synopsis:

A terrible accident ends one life, but is just the beginning for another. . . .
