From the critically acclaimed author of Waiting for Normal and All Rise for the Honorable Perry T. Cook, Leslie Connor, comes a deeply poignant and beautifully crafted story about self-reliance, redemption, and hope.

Mason Buttle is the biggest, sweatiest kid in his grade, and everyone knows he can barely read or write. Mason's learning disabilities are compounded by grief. Fifteen months ago, Mason's best friend, Benny Kilmartin, turned up dead in the Buttle family's orchard.

An investigation drags on, and Mason, honest as the day is long, can't understand why Lieutenant Baird won't believe the story Mason has told about that day.

Both Mason and his new friend, tiny Calvin Chumsky, are relentlessly bullied by the other boys in their neighborhood, so they create an underground haven for themselves. When Calvin goes missing, Mason finds himself in trouble again. He's desperate to figure out what happened to Calvin and, eventually, Benny.

But will anyone believe him?

what I like: character voice. Mason's character is very distinct, warm, loving, and loyal. I an grateful for the resolution off the mystery. I also think this book had too much bad luck. Would a kid like this book, or is it a book about kids for grownups? ( )

This book gave me the sads.

Mason Buttle, Mason Buttle. He is a character with shades of Lenny from Of Mice and Men. Big and strong, but gentle. He is self-deprecating (calling himself a "gross out" because he sweats excessively). He can't read. He is trusting to a fault (thinking the best of a kid who ruthlessly bullies him). He seems to be surrounded by a cloud of bad luck and death (his mother and his best friend both die tragically). He has synesthesia that makes him see colors related to his feelings, but he's afraid to talk about it for fear of being ridiculed.

Things start looking up for Mason when he makes a new best friend and his school counselor introduces him to voice-to-text software that allows him to keep a journal of sorts. He is still bullied and still under investigation for the death of his friend, but with this new friend he starts to have fun. They build a fort and bond.

Then the story gets sad again. I almost couldn't take it. Poor, sweet Mason Buttle.

Fear not, readers, for our Mason does get positive resolution (I guessed the ending pretty early in the book, but I think kids will find it very satisfying when it's revealed). But it's a long slog to get there.

Recommended for ages 10 and up if they like tear-jerkers. ( )

Wow! I expected this book to be cute....instead I'm blown away! This is a fantastic story for those of all ages. There's alot to learn inside these pages....love, acceptance, courage, bravery, selflessness.....an amazing tale about an honest and humble boy who only sees the best in everyone.

I rate this book alongside Bridge to Terabithia.....one of my fave of all time youth books. I will now pass this to my children to read, and highly recommend this for children and adults alike. I will definitely look into more Leslie Conner books! ( )

This is such a beautiful, sensitive story (with a great dog in it!) - great for fans of Fish in a Tree, Counting by 7s, and Wonder. ( )

Note: I received an ARC of this book from the publisher at ALA Midwinter 2018.
