1. Oh, how I love Gary Schmidt’s work, and this is one I have not read. My youngest son and I have ransacked our library’s shelves for all the audio books by Gary Schmidt, and they have been a delight! Thanks for making me aware of this story!

    Is this an adult book? Or kids book? Anythijng objectionable in it content-wise? It sounds fab, just don’t want to start as a read aloud if it is too mature.

      I can’t think of anything that I would consider objectionable about it. There is some violence, but in my opinion it isn’t graphic. Your mileage may vary, of course. Thanks for commenting!

        Oh, and it’s a work of juvenile fiction, though as evidenced by the comments here, adults love Schmidt’s novels, too! <3

  3. I went on a Gary Schmidt fest last year and read this one for the first time. Loved it! The descriptiveness stands out in my mind. I enjoyed revisiting it in your review!
