Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When fifteen-year-old Henry Every washes up on shore, the only clues to his shocking death are those he leaves behind in a secret ledger that someone mysteriously leaves on his parents' doorstep. Crammed full of his darkly comic confessions, the pages detail Henry's myriad misadventures on his wayward quest for self-betterment: acts of petty crime with his best friend, Jorden, a romantic obsession with the elusive Benna, and a prickly relationship with a lethal jellyfish. Quietly wise and laugh-out-loud funny, The Every Boy proves there's hope in the darkest places — you just have to know where to look.

Synopsis:

Both a pageturning mystery and a one-of-a-kind celebration of human individuality, The Every Boy is the story of Henry Every's life and perplexing death at fifteen years of age. Harlan Every finds his son's diary and pores over the secret thoughts in an attempt to connect with the boy he never reallyknew—and to figure out how he died.
