Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ten-year-old Tae Kwon Do blue belt and budding rock hound Brendan Buckley keeps a "Confidential" notebook for his top-secret scientific discoveries. And he's found something totally top secret. The grandpa he's never met, who his mom refuses to talk about or see, is an expert mineral collector and lives nearby! Secretly, Brendan visits Ed DeBose, whose skin is pink, not brown like Brendan's, his dad's, or that of Grampa Clem's, who recently died. Brendan sets out to find the reason behind Ed's absence, but what he discovers can't be explained by science, and now he wishes he'd never found him at all. . . .

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

Uncovering a family secret regarding a grandpa he's never met, ten-year-old Brendan Buckley decides to go in search of the truth, but when he meets the elderly man and sees that he is of a different race, the biracial boy gets hard answers to questions he soon regrets asking. Teacher's Guide available. Reprint.

Synopsis:

Brendan Buckley, a biracial ten-year-old, applies his scientific ability and interest in rocks and minerals to connect with his white grandfather, the president of Puyallup Rock Club, and to learn why he and Brendan's mother are estranged.
