Description

The two-time Newbery Honor winner Gary D. Schmidt delivers the shattering story of Joseph, a father at 13, who has never seen his daughter, Jupiter. After spending time in a juvenile facility, he's placed with a foster family on a farm in rural Maine. Here Joseph, damaged and withdrawn, meets 12-year-old Jack, who narrates the account of the troubled, passionate teen who wants to find his baby at any cost. In this riveting novel, two boys discover the true meaning of family and the sacrifices it requires.

Hold your heart

Can't say this is a happy story, but it definitely hit me right in the heart. One of those books that makes me wish I were the characters. The performance is spot on.

Crushingly beautiful

Among other things, I am an 8th grade teacher and former foster parent. This book is devastatingly realistic; I felt gutted at the end; wrenched by feelings in the way that only a master storyteller can evoke. I wish every student (and every adult) could read this book and understand that Joseph is sitting in our classroom every day.

good read

I was hooked from "the first time he halfway smiled"! Family by choice v. family by blood. True happiness emerges.

My kids wanted me to read it, they were right.

Ok, so I wasn't quite as moved as my 11 and 13 year-old daughters were, but it's still a good story. Though some of the premise is a little hard to accept, it isn't impossible. The story of tragedy, perseverance, and love (not primarily romantic) are encouraging and provide good subject matter for conversations with young teens.

wow

Amazing plot. I could do so much with this with my 6th graders, but not sure that the parents would approve of the story line. :(

Really good story

A teenaged patient recommended this book to me. I'm grateful. I recommend it now to teenagers (who seem ready for it) and particularly to people who work with foster kids.
