About This Book

The phone rang: It was Michael Jordan

Can a fat boy in a new neighborhood be a TV talk show host? Can a girl with a name like "Blister" get anyone to come to her birthday party? If your as-good-as-stepfather walks out on the family, is there any way he'd come back?

If it were up to Jonah Morrison to say how the world should be, the answer to all those questions would be "yes." This is the story of how one boy reinvents himself, and a little bit of the world with him.

Susan Shreve works her inimitable blend of magic and humor into this painfully real story of a troubled sixth-grade boy.
