Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Homer Aldrich Winthrop was a neurologist who died of a neurological illness. Thats all Homer Jr.s mother will say about his father, who died when he was 2, and any prodding for details results in silence,

evasion, or sudden migraine headaches. So by age 12, Homers given up asking.

But on an unexpected trip to Maine, Homer finds himself in a place where his father had lived. In this one coastal village there must be millions of facts about his father. Now Homer must face his biggest fear–maybe theres a reason his father is such a secret. Maybe there are things he really doesnt want to know.

Still, Maine gives him courage. Theres something about the people he meets and the breadth of the sky that convince Homer to search for the truth–to solve the mystery of his own life.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

In this "genuinely satisfying book about friendship and family" ("School Library Journal"), a boy sets out to search for the truth about his father and solve the mystery of his own life. A Book Sense 76 selection.
